From the shores of Lake Michigan to the inland lakes and streams of Sheboygan County, watersports and recreation abound. Sheboygan’s Harbor Centre Marina offers boat enthusiast a full-service marina with over 280 boat slips. For the more adventurous, try your hand at sailing, fresh water surfing, or water skiing. Guided services are also available with Lake Michigan charter fishing; inland lake guided fishing and guided river kayaking.
Sheboygan is the Spirit on the Lake, and our favorite Lake Michigan personality is play time! Sure, she fights with us. She weeps with us. She competes with us. And sometimes she’s so downright stubborn, we have to tug our sailboats back to shore! But when she’s playful, stop whatever you’re doing and dance with her. You’ll never forget it!
If it’s a breezy day with winds in the range of 15 to 25 miles per hour, head over to the south beach by King Park. You’re likely to see some amazing kite surfers soaring along between wave and airlift action. On Wednesday afternoons, you can usually spy a few sailing matches, too. And if the winds really kick into a whirling splendor, head over to the North Pier at Deland Park. The surfers live for these moments. If you’re adventurous enough to haul your own motorboat or jet-skis to our shores, then grab the sunscreen and hit the boat launch, or check out our our first-class Harbor Centre Marina and stay a few days! If you’re driving in, hop on a charter fishing boat. You’re sure to take home either a trophy catch or some really great fish tales!
However you choose to Sheboygan, when it’s time for you to leave us, a part of you will always be with our Spirit on the Lake.
