Theme-Badge_Signature-Experience

Sailing Lake Superior’s Canadian shore is an Ontario Signature Experience! Located about 20 Nautical Miles south south west of Thunder Bay is Spar Island. Accessible only by water craft it has a beautiful all weather bay. Experience the crystal clear waters and magnificent vistas of the world’s largest freshwater lake. Embark on a full day adventure sailing out past the Welcome Islands, Pie Island stopping at Spar Island. Hike a short distance (750m) through the boreal forest and reach the TOP of the WORLD lookout, stop atop the high cliffs to view the expanse of Superior’s open water. Marvel at the magnitude of the lake’s largest island, Isle Royale. In the distance you can see Thompson and Pie island’s mesa. Return for a meal aboard, or a shoreside fire and a dip in Lake Superior. Each excursion is unique, as Lake Superior always has something to say about what you will see and which direction you will take. Always an abundance of wind for sailing but rarely the same direction or force.

Take an extended excursion with an overnight on Thompson Island or two night trip that also overnights at the base 1000 ft high Sleeping Giant.
See extended trip prices under the “Detail” panel.
