Business Spotlight: Fox River Tours

This week we are shining our spotlight on Fox River Tours. Fox River Tours takes curious passengers along the Fox River with many different private and public cruises while learning about the area and taking in what nature has to offer.


We talked with Candice Mortara from Fox River Tours and got the scoop on what’s to come in 2018! The company currently has one boat called River Tyme that departs from De Pere, WI. They will be expanding at the end of May 2018 and will be offering trips departing from Appleton, WI. This ‘new’ boat was previously the Peshtigo Princess built in 1981, it has been repainted and updated and turned into River Tyme Too!


Currently, the only way to purchase tickets is over the phone and by booking online. Mortara noted that many people like the old-fashioned way of purchasing tickets in person and having the tangible ticket to keep, so they are looking into installing a ticket booth. The ticket booth would be movable and would be located in the parking lot across from the boat. The company is working with the city to get the permission for the ticket booth. This booth will also be a good source of information for local De Pere businesses, they would like to offer coupons and specials for people to redeem at surrounding businesses.

Mortara explains the enjoyment of the business and what makes her feel successful about Fox River Tours. She enjoys getting people on the water and seeing how much the passengers enjoy the cruises. She explains that people can live in this area their whole life and some have never been on the Fox River.


“It’s like a mini-vacation without having to leave.”

Fox River Tours has had many cruises booked for family gatherings, wedding anniversaries, birthdays, work outings, and more. Mortara talks about the excitement in seeing multi-generational families enjoying the beauty of the Fox River.
