Calling All “LOOPERS”: Enjoy Your Stay In Southern Door County At Wave Pointe Marina & Resort

Published: Friday, January 11, 2019

Calling all “LOOPERS”: Do you need a reason to explore the scenic waters of Green Bay? Wave Pointe Marina & Resort is worth cruising over to while exploring the upper Great Lakes, and should be a planned stop-over to get off your yacht and chill a while.

Nestled in a quiet, hidden area of southern Door County, Wis. on the eastern shores of Green Bay, Wave Pointe has become a favorite destination location for locals and visitors alike. The weather-safe harbor contains a 124 slip marina and a full-service fuel island. Wave Pointe offers boaters a substantial amount of amenities inside of the resort including a boater’s lounge, free laundry, large bathrooms, showers and dressing areas, and indoor hot tub and sauna - all with a private entrance. Guests also have full access to the resort’s outdoor heated pool and Tiki Bar. Throughout the marina, boaters will find grills, picnic tables, and a fire pit patio.

Transient slips are available for those who wish to drop anchor and spend the day, weekend, a week, or more. If sleeping on a boat is not an option or if you “loopers” want to get your land-legs back, Wave Pointe has a spacious 24 suite resort for a comfortable night’s stay on land. The suites range from 210 square feet to over 900 square feet, all facing the harbor. Each suite has a whirlpool tub, full kitchen or kitchenette, and king or queen size bed.

While you’re at Wave Pointe, feel free to dine in at the full service restaurant, Gilmo’s Bar & Bistro. From May-October, boaters can dine inside or outside on the patio where a beverage from the Tiki Bar can be enjoyed while listening to live entertainment on the weekends. Docking is always free if the visit is just for lunch or dinner.

Take advantage of the Boat House Rental & Gift Shop during your visit. The Boat House offers pontoon, kayak, and paddleboard rentals. Before heading out onto the water, order a blended iced coffee, made with coffee from Door County Coffee, or enjoy a cool fruit smoothie or ice cream.
