Lake Superior Bareboat Sailing Charters - Sail Isle Royale and Lake Superior's Canadian shore
Lake Superior Bareboat Sailing Charters

Bareboat sailing charters on Lake Superior’s Canadian Coast and Isle Royale, the Jewel of the US National Park system.

Close your eyes. Imagine yourself skippering a sailboat with your family and friends across the crystal clear waters of Lake Superior. Wind on your face. Surrounded on all sides by picturesque landscapes. Feel your worries and stress fall behind in the boats wake. Breathe in the clean fresh air. Anchor your boat in a deserted cove. Go for a hike in the unspoiled nature. Grill some steaks on the barbecue. Lean back and get lost in the spectacular evening sky.

Make this dream a reality with Sail Superior Bareboat Sailing Charters!

We are located in Thunder Bay, the gateway to Isle Royale and Lake Superior’s rugged and remote Canadian Coast. Now within your grasp are places such as Isle Royale, Thompson Island, The Sleeping Giant, Black Bay, Horseshoe Cove, Otter Cove, Loon Harbour, Red Rock, Nipigon Bay, Battle Island, Rossport and the Slate Islands … to name just a few.


We can also provide one-way charters so you can see more of the north shore. No need to rush back over the same cruising area you just sailed. For example, take the boat on a three or four day trip from Thunder Bay to Red Rock, and leave it there. Or do the Slate islands on a week-long trip leaving the vessel in Rossport.


One thing that must be mentioned is the strength of the US dollar; save on all your provisioning costs while here.
