STURGEON BAY, WI - The Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay presents the 30th Annual Shipyard Tours on Saturday, May 6th, 2023. For one day each year, Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding opens their doors to the public for tours of the shipbuilding industry. This year the tour will focus on Bay Shipbuilding only.
Fincanieri Bay Shipbuilding site is 63 acres dedicated to construction, inspection and maintenance of the Great Lakes fleet. The 1 1/2 hour guided walking tour is focused on multiple informational sites moderated by shipbuilding professionals. The walk is over irregular surfaces and consideration should be given to personal activity level.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for youth 11-17. There is a limit of only 1,000 tickets total for the event. In past years all tickets were purchased weeks in advance. We are selling tickets in One Hour time slots. Please be prepared to show proof of purchase with a printed confirmation or cell confirmation, Parking will be available on the street, or any of the public parking lots that are a short walk away in Downtown Sturgeon Bay or north at Sunset Park.
The tours are mainly outside, so dress for the weather. Due to the nature of confidentiality, photos will not be allowed.
All proceeds from ticket purchases are directed toward Rotary Club of Sturgeon Bay and the Rotary Youth Interact charitable projects, including support for human and community development, vocational and academic ‘Service Above Self” scholarships, and the international exchange student program.
