Boating in Gills Rock WI at Island Clipper and Yankee Clipper

Boating in Gills Rock WI at Island Clipper and Yankee Clipper

The "Clippers" provide narrated passenger service to Washington Island from Gills Rock. They meet the Viking Tour Train and Islander Bus tour.


The Yankee Clipper is a passenger ferry that operates as a permanent substitute for Voight Marine's other vessel, the Island Clipper, when the Island Clipper is either out of service or is making voyages to Fayette State Park in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The Yankee Clipper travels only between Gill's Rock and Washington Island, an island township in Door County, located approximately six miles north of Gill's Rock.

The Yankee Clipper operates as a constituent part of the interstate travel for many of these passengers and is an indispensable link to their interstate journey because ferry service is the only means of public transportation to Washington Island. Washington Island is a residential township located in Green Bay approximately six miles north of Gill's Rock. As a community of permanent and summer residents, it maintains churches, schools, businesses, stores and all of the features required to support a permanent population. As a picturesque tourist and historical site, the island offers its visitors parks, beaches, bicycle paths, gift shops, restaurants, historical and cultural landmarks, and bus and train tours. Yankee Clipper is not engaged in interstate commerce because the service it provides is more like an "excursion service.”
Group tours welcome.
