The Superior Rocket Experience! 

For those of you who prefer to go VERY fast and too see more of the Lake Superior scenery, this is for you. There are endless options available for those who want to explore the landscape surrounding Thunder Bay. With Sail Superior you can hike the Giant! cruise out to the historical Porphyry Island Lighthouse, or tour up the Kaministiqua River. Regardless of the journey and weather, you will be in for a comfortable and thrilling experience!

 What to Expect 

Even on the gloomiest of days, you will have fun. I am talking from my personal experience.  As a captain (in training) for Sail Superior, I spend the majority of my day on the water or preparing the vessels for our daily tours.

Our first excursion on the Superior Rocket was a foggy and chilly May afternoon. We left from Prince Arthurs Landing and arrived at the Sleeping Giant 40 minutes later! This would normally take 3-4 hours by sailboat. Now I know you’re thinking, that must be a cold ride. WRONG. Sail Superior provides full-length Mustang™ floater suits, gloves, and googles for its passengers. So you stay warm and dry! 

For those of you that are familiar with the always changing water conditions of Lake Superior might be concerned with how the Rocket will handle in big waves. There is no need to worry! The 30foot RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) Superior Rocket, equipped with twin 250 Evinrude engines, is designed for planing over the surface of the waves. Making the voyage across Lake Superior comfortable and fast! Even in rough water conditions! 

Also, our Superior Rocket tours are Pet-Friendly! Share your boating and hiking experience with your canine buddy! 


What NOT to Expect

If you are anticipating a relaxing, calm and quiet day on the water, you will be disappointed. The captains will do their best to keep everyone happy and comfortable, however, this experience is meant to be thrilling and fast moving. If you are looking for a relaxing and peaceful day on the water, we recommend exploring our Lake Superior Sailing Tours

Sail Superior does not recommend Zodiac travel for expectant mothers, people in frail health, or those with neck or back concerns. Instead, we recommend one of our unique and scenic Harbour Sailing Tours or our  Big Lake Adventures by sailboat.
