THUNDER BAY – Shop Local – “The largest and most exciting fresh water sailing in the world” Based out of Thunder Bay at Marina Park Pier 3 Superior Sail offers 90 minute harbour tours and private group excursions to the Welcome Islands using our 38ft California made Downeaster 38 Ketch. Lake Superior is Big, so we use our Big boat for our Big Lake (overnight) adventures, its a Jonmeri 40.
“We first tested “Frodo” by crossing the Atlantic, twice, in her. No problem – so you will be safe when we take you out to experience the raw beauty of Lake Superior,” states Capt. Gregory Heroux. “We also use all that sailing experience to teach you. Sailing instruction and bareboat charters, for those of you who already know how to sail, are done on Varua she’s 36′. We use the ISPA method for sailing lessons. Come experience an unforgettable vacation surrounded by the pristine beauty of Lake Superior”.
The Sail Superior.com Yacht Charters season is May 15th to October 15th., or there about.
History: Superior Sail was established in 2000. “We started, hoping to provide a bareboat charter business for experienced sailors so they could explore Lake Superior ‘the worlds greatest fresh water lake’. Not enough captains came to rent our boats – so we changed business plans. I took my captains licence and started providing harbour tours to tourists and unskilled wouldbe sailors,” shares Capt. Gregory Heroux. “Many asked me if I could teach them to sail. I took my ISPA instructors course and started to teach. Now we have four divisions in Sail Superior.com – Harbour tours including private day sailing journeys, Big Lake Adventures (overnight trips) Sail and learn charters (ISPA instruction) and bareboat charters”.
“We have grown from one boat to five – One boat dedicated to Harbour Tours, “Journeyer” 38 feet 12 passengers, one for Big Lake Adventures, ‘Frodo’, 40 feet 6 passengers for overnight 12 for day sails, Varua 36′ 6 passenger for bareboat charters, and two Cal 20 daysailers for students to learn from”.
