What is it about Lake Superior that has captured the imaginations of explorers since the 1600s?

“WELCOME ISLAND EXCURSION” 3.5 Hours: $525.00 ($593.25 tax inc.)
Without a doubt our most popular Lake Superior Adventure. A little further out into the Bay, yet only a short distance from the City lies the picturesque Welcome islands, high cliffs, sheltered anchorage, winged wildlife. From here enjoy a closer view of the Sleeping Giant to the east, and the entire panorama of the city to the west. Put together a group of up to 8 for a family reunion, business outing, milestone birthday or invite only your favourite person for a romantic getaway or twilight sail.

Early morning departure: 10 AM $435 ($491.55 tax inc)

Have a really big family or group? – ask us about the multi boat excursion: Two boats, and room for up to 16 guests, a short “race” against each other to the island and then we raft together for lunch. Bring your own meals and drinks or have the excursion catered.
