The coast guard has been out monitoring all the fun. Today, Local Five's Caroline Rowland rode along with the patrols to get a closer look at what they're dealing with.
Rodney Pratt is one of six Coast Guard officers assigned the job of keeping boaters safe this summer near Green Bay. He patrols from the Fox River in De Pere, all the way up to Oconto.
Said Pratt, "This weekend, it's picked up quite a bit, since the last couple weekends, so far everybody's been behaving there hasn't been anything crazy out here."
Pratt is looking for boaters operating their vessel in an unsafe manner or any boaters who appear to be intoxicated.
One area of concern is Long Tail Beach, or Long Tail Point.
It's a popular spot for boats to park, and its well known as the party barge.
All summer, the Coast Guard has made four arrests for boating while intoxicated.
There was also one drowning when a 64 year old man fell overboard while fishing in the bay.
Since Memorial Day, 13 people have died in Wisconsin waters.
Today marks the last day of patrol duty for the Green Bay-based Coast Guard unit.
The Coast Guard unit based in Sturgeon Bay will monitor the area alone now for the rest of the year.
