Explore the wonder, beauty, and fun of Lake Michigan from the deck of Discovery World’s Tall Ship, the S/V Denis Sullivan. Climb aboard the world’s only re-creation of a 19th century three-masted, Great Lakes schooner.
A great way to end the summer! Despite cold, brisk temps and wind, we loved our two hour tour. The crew was friendly and invited passengers to help with hoisting sails, etc. Beautiful ship, views of Milwaukee, and lake Michigan. We'll do this again.
We took a Sunday evening 2 hour sail. Winds were too calm to actually sail the boat under her own power so our trip consisted of motoring up the shoreline of Milwaukee and into the mouth of the Milwaukee River. The weather conditions obviously were...More
We took a trip around Milwaukee side of Lake Michigan with three children-13,10,8. The first 20 minutes were exciting with group participation in setting the sails. After that, the crew dissipated and showed no interest in the passengers. They went to their galley and would...More
We took a three day cruise on this Schooner from Quebec to Ogdenburg, NY. This is an authentic seafaring trip, not a cruise ship. Passengers participate in the activities on-board (to the extent they feel comfortable) helping check readings, hoist sails, clean-up the galley after...More

It seemed pricey at $45 each, but we really enjoyed the 2 hour trip on the lake. The captain and crew were all so friendly. The history of how the ship came to be and its adventures since were captivating. The view of Milwaukee from...More
It was such a great experience to sail on a replica schooner that once sailed on Lake Michigan. The crew was friendly and willing to answer any of our questions. The boat will take 50 but there was only 10 on our trip which was...More
My husband and I were up in Milwaukee for Irish Fest and booked a tour on the SV Denis Sullivan. What a great excursion. Not only is the entire crew friendly, but we got to help them by hoisting the sails! It was a not...More
First Time sailing. Crew was great and I got to help hoist the sails - not as easy as looks. Great view of Milwaukee skyline. Lake was a little rough. Glad Discovery World was closed or I would never have gone. Would go again but...More
