LAKE WALK – OTHER INFORMATION

The Mailboat Tour can stop only at Williams Bay Municipal Pier. No stops at Fontana!
Full Lake Tours can stop at either Williams Bay or Fontana Municipal Piers, but only one stop per tour – not both.

Municipal Piers will be used for passenger drop off and pick up. Williams Bay has one Municipal Pier that is clearly marked.
Fontana’s pier for drop off and pick up is marked “Municipal Pier #1” (closest to the beach).
There are no gang planks at the Municipal Piers – you must be able to step on or off of the boat independently!

Reservations are required! You will provide your name, cell phone number (in case the office or the boat’s Captain needs to contact you the day of your walk), email address and payment in full.

This is a self-guided tour. You determine your start time and the pace you set. Only the path is public property, everything else is private property. Wear good walking shoes as there are a variety of terrains. There are no bathrooms or water available along the path. The boat will have a restroom available. There will also be beverages and packaged snacks on board for purchase with cash or card.

Walkers being picked up must be at the end of the Municipal Pier about 10-15 minutes prior to the boat’s arrival.

If the weather is questionable, you can call 262.248.6206, extension “0”, to cancel or upgrade to the Full Lake Tour without doing the walk.
