Fish Creek, WI – A longtime employee of the popular Fish Creek Scenic Boat Tours (FCSBT) has a new owner, and it is someone with first-hand knowledge of providing safe and friendly customer service to visitors of Door County. 

Cody Bolton joined the company in 2013, having worked under the mentorship of now former owner Eric Lundquist. On July 1st, he became the owner of the business. 

Over the years, Cody has proven his knowledge on the waters of Door County by growing up around it and boating upon it. Bolton worked at Yacht Works marina for many seasons, gaining knowledge of boats, marinas and other useful maritime information. 

In 2006, he moved to Fort Lauderdale, FL and obtained his US Merchant Mariner Masters License while working on several large private yachts. He has been working as a part time captain for FCSBT since 2013 and took on a full time management role of the company in the spring of 2017.

“Not only am I thrilled to be a part of the community, but to continue to provide a service that helps connect our customers with a view of Door County they might not otherwise experience,” stated Bolton. “Our entire team at Fish Creek Scenic Boat Tours is pleased to provide our guests with unmatched service and a unique experience.”

Lending for the business acquisition was provided by Nicolet National Bank. Business and financial plan development was provided by the Small Business Development Center at UW-Green Bay, facilitated through their partnership with Door County Economic Development Corporation’s entrepreneurial services program.
