Always a pleasure dealing with Kevin and Keenan. Very personable and very helpful. When pulling the boat out at the end of the season, we discovered that the trailer had a flat tire. Kevin went above and beyond and fixed it right away. Highly recommended Kaps Marina.

Friendly people at the marina and the restaurant Excellent restaurant on site. Fried grouper and sides were delicious! Lots of assistance to dock, there to greet us and help us. Will go back

Thank you so much! We are a family run business, and appreciate the positive feed back. Hope to have you stay with us again in the future :)

Staying at Kap's Marina is similar to staying at a rundown campground, there is very little maintenance done around the place, junk laying around, spider webs encasing the doorways/lights, weak wifi, no frills showers (one hook and a chair, no floor towel, not even a shelf to put your soap/shampoo on)
Marina Response:
We are sorry your stay with us was not up to par. We are a family owned business with limited staff... That is by no means an excuse for the lack of upkeep. Our WIFI is supplied by DCONLINE and is usually spectacular. Our bathrooms are cleaned daily. Addition of hooks will be addressed. Thank you for your review, as ALL constructive criticism is always valuable to us make needed adjustment.

Kaps is now on our list of definite destinations each season. Staff is so friendly and helpful and the food is great at the Wagon Wheel. There is a new clothing shop - Do North - where I got very nice stuff that dries quickly. The walk to the main road is short and there are several ice cream shops. It’ fun to watch the ferries some and go, but it’s not in the thick of it so it is very quiet. Electrical is 50amp and adaptors are available. Wifi is good from the furthest slip. Keep your fenders low coming in and keep closer to the green buoy at the entrance. Easily handles 5.5 draught.

A great stay at the marina. Kevin was in contact with us prior to our arrival and waiting to catch our lines when we came in. Power is a long way so make sure you have an extention, not a problem for us. We rode our bikes to downtown and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Plenty of area to walk the pups. Enjoyed a peaceful night.

Lap’s marina is our favorite. A family run marina that makes you feel like family, you get to know them. Their restaurant right at the marina is fantastic. Best breakfast in the island and you want to be here Saturday nights for “Kevin’s famous prime rib.” Keep doing what you’re doing, we’ll be back soon. Bill Borland

Thanks "Skipper", always a pleasure to see you guys! Enjoy the rest of your summer and keep searching for "motorized treasures", you never know what you will find....

Kevin and Barb are very accommodating and appreciative! They are quick to respond to anything needed. Bathrooms we’re very clean. Small family owned marina. Nothing fancy, but all we needed. We had 4 sailboats in our group. My wife really enjoyed our visit. That’s all I need to hear!👍😂We had a great dinner in their restaurant. Very good Door County Cherry pie and also cherry pancakes for breakfast!😋😋
Marina Response:
Thank you so much for the great review. We hope you guys will come back and see us again when the winds provide. Enjoy the rest of your summer! Kevin, Barb and Keenan.

We recently stayed at Kaps Marina as part of a 2 week cruise. It was by far the friendliest, most helpful stay of our trip. The staff, especially Kevin, Barb and Keenan, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. If you're ever at the end of the Door peninsula you should make a reservation and try some of Kevin's cherry pie!
Marina Response:
Thank you! It's great to hear all the positive input. We loved having you stay with us and hope we will get to see you on your next adventure this way. (we will get the oven hot when we know you are on your way) ;)

Great communication prior to arrival. Helped with lines when we got there and provided pertinent info. on/in a informational brochure about what to do on island. Bathrooms/showers were clean. Great place to get away from the hustle... quiet and rustic and laid back. Even loaned us a car for a trip to store. Enjoyed our stay.
Marina Response:
Thank you so much for the great review! We try to give the best customer service possible, as every boater is super important to us. Feedback is always appreciated. Hope you guys have a GREAT rest of your summer and come back and see us again soon! Kevin, Barb and Keenan

Even with a mere 5’2” draft, it’s a little close on the depth. But friendly and accommodating staff!

These guys went over the top Bead from Alpena. Mi
Marina Response:
Thank you! We try hard to make sure to be on the dock waiting to catch lines and get everyone set with what they need. Everyone who stays with us is very important to us! We hope you will be able to come back and stay again when the winds are favorable and time allows!! Kevin, Barb and Keenan

We love this marina, it’s usually pretty quiet, and there are close places for our dogs to swim. Rental cars available to explore the island.
Marina Response:
Always a pleasure to have you guys here! Gator was happy to be back for sure and it was nice to meet the "new guy" Rip! Looking forward to you guys coming back!!

Perfect gem on the island. Everything you would expect and more. Nice people, clean and well kept bathrooms/showers. We really liked the restaurant next door for breakfast/dinner. Will be back. Thank you

Kap’s staff is very helpful. They were at the slip as we came to help with dock lines and shore power. Washrooms and showers were very clean. Their Ships Wheel restaurant had a prime rib special, excellent. Served good breakfast and only a short walk from the slips. The marina is very quiet. We had a great stay and will come pack I

We have begun our reverse direction Loop trip heading up to the North Channel first but couldn't resist stopping at Kapps for a final goodby. Everything went swimingly as usual. Barb and Kevin took good care of us, fed us those awesome Danish cherry pancakes and sent us on our way! We learned of the loss of a good friend, Will. He will be remembered. Highly recommend this place.
Marina Response:
Thank you....Loss is always hard, especially when its both your parents who made everything possible for you. We will keep their LEGACY alive in Kaps Marina with all they have taught us to make it a destination for all those who own a boat and want to head this way...God speed you and your crew!

We really enjoyed our Stay at Kaps! Friendly and courteous staff as usual.

by James P. - Verified user on Jun 29, 2022
Washington Island is worth the trip. Kaps was OK. Showers and restrooms nice and clean. When we arrived, excellent service helping us get tied up. But, never saw any staff after our arrival. Docks are not very good and actually not sturdy. I would be very concerned with the stability of the docks in high winds. Utilities at the dock were good.

by Ronald M. - Verified user on Jun 27, 2022
This was an awesome experience! It is a smaller, family run marina and restaurant, and Kevin, Keenan and Barb bent over backwards to accommodate all of our needs, and they are all so friendly and accommodating! Washington Island is a great little Bohemian kind of place, and the marina and restaurant are on of our absolute favorites! This is a can't miss stop when boating in the vicinity!

Easiest/closest marina on Washington Island to get to from Door County. Docking was simple. The staff is great. The restaraunt, The Ships Wheel is right there & very good. Close to bike & recreational vehicle rentals to use when exploring the island.

Great little family marina. Keenan and Kevin were super responsive and helpful getting us in and settled. We’re a deep keeled (6’9”) sailboat - Channels are deep enough. We got into our slip and settled into the mud near the bow. Not a problem. Easy in and out. Definitely have them connect you with Leo the local taxi man. He’s a real personality and great tour guide. The town is a few miles away, so getting a ride from Leo is advised.

Highly recommend! The owners went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay.
