First Trip to Wisconsin

We have never been to Wisconsin. Planning a trip for July or August. I thought of including a cruise of Lake Michigan in the trip. Has anyone taken more than a dinner cruise on Lake Michigan. How long? Best place to depart from? Company? Any recommendations would be helpful.

With the winter we've been having it is a bit hard to wrap my head around Wisconsin boat tours, but here goes. Of course, your ultimate destination would impact the tours you'd want to take. While not strictly Lake Michigan cruises these websites might get you started.

Milwaukee- Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan:

Door County tours of Green Bay and Lake Michigan:

Something else to consider might be a cruise of the Mississippi River out of Prairie du Chien. They have a great eco-tour that takes you into the back waters to see the wildlife. We've been on it 3 times and it is always different as seasons change. I love watching the eagles, herons, and other large water birds. Southwest Wisconsin is a beautiful and under-appreciated part of the state, in my opinion.
