Theme-Badge_Signature-Experience

Sailing Lake Superior’s Canadian shore is an Ontario Signature Experience! Located about 14 Nautical Miles south of Thunder Bay is Thompson Island provincial park. Accessible only by water craft it is a favourite of the local boating community. 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 Thompson Island for a one of a kind traditional Finnish sauna and a dip in Lake Superior. Hike through the boreal forest 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. 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.
