Dillinger Pontoon Tour

August 22 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

What were John Dillinger and his gang really like and what is the “behind the scenes” story of their weekend in Manitowish Waters? Enjoy the rich histories of Manitowish Waters as we travel by pontoon to historic Dillinger sites. Have lunch at the famous Little Bohemia Lodge and tour the property that was featured in the movie Public Enemies. Tour is led by Kay Krans, retired history teacher. Lunch cost included for both time options and is at Little Bohemia 12:00 – 1:00pm. Space fills up quickly for this popular program so register early! $50 ($45 members). Tour meets at Little Bohemia Restaurant and occurs at different times, so please visit to see more details and for registration. Saturday, 9:30 am – 12 pm (lunch at 12-1pm for this option)  Please note both tours eat lunch from 12-1pm (either after or before your tour).

PLEASE NOTE: Pontoon trips will have a max of 8 participants, along with a driver and program leader and it is required that you sign up in advance. It is also required that registered participants bring their own mask and wear it during the program, along with using hand sanitizer as you enter the boat. It will be best if you can sit with people you came with, socially distant from others (as best you can!). Participants will need to drive themselves to the start location of the trip (directions will be emailed prior to the trip). Do not come if you have had illness within 14 days of event (you will be able to receive a refund). NLDC reserves the right to cancel/refund if case levels significantly change and the program in deemed unsafe. PLEASE CALL THE DISCOVERY CENTER TO REGISTER, NOT LITTLE BOHEMIA.
