Rowleys Bay Resort has always been a great place for those who enjoy outside pursuits. Now thereís even more to do thanks to DC Adventure Center, our newest recreational partner. We encourage you to stop by their waterfront home base at the resort and check out their expansive offerings and meet their professionally-trained and certified staff.
DC Adventure Center has built a new and exciting four-span zip line that takes you through our forest canopy. They also offer a variety of kayak tours and rentals, including guided tours of Lake Michigan and Green Bay. For a totally new sensation, hop on one of their stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) and enjoy the bay and the Mink River Estuary. SUP rentals and tours also originate from their waterfront headquarters.
Returning once again is Seaquist Segway and their popular off-road tours on our expansive trail network. People who try it say itís really easy to do and that they hate to have the tour end! The oversized tires on these special Segway units allow you to traverse trails and absorb natureís bumps with the greatest of ease. Seaquist Segway sets up shop alongside the DC Adventure Center building.
If you are looking to pull in the big one and impress your friends back home, then hook up with Captain Tim Guckenberg and his Reel Addictions Charters. A variety of boating adventures are available through Captain John’s Fish n’ Fun Pontoon Charters. Options include bass fishing, nature spotting, acoustic music, and private picnic cruises. All trips, with up to six passengers, are guided by USCG master captain John Nolte. As is the case with all of our outside vendors, a good way to contact them is through the phone numbers and links found below.
If you bring your own canoe, kayak or windsurfer, itís easy to launch from our marina and town launch area. The bay is the perfect spot for aqua adventures of all types. Itís also common to see anglers of all ages fishing off the docks.
Birders can enjoy four-season bird watching on the Mink River Estuary and the resort's never-frozen bay. An estimated 200 species pass through annually, including bitterns, great blue herons, black-crowned night herons, sedge wrens, yellow rails, northern harriers, marsh hawks, blue-winged teal, loons, black ducks, red-breasted mergansers, swans, sandhill cranes and bald eagles.
