Theme-Badge_Signature-Experience

Sailing Lake Superior’s North 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 two or three day adventure, sail to the Welcome Islands, hike the Sleeping Giant, photograph local island lighthouses, and then cap your day with a traditional Finnish sauna at Thompson Island. When night falls, snuggle up beside the campfire, light up the BBQ and enjoy the alluring aromas as you sit back, relax and marvel at the breathtaking milky-way twinkling brightly overhead. 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.
