This Lake Superior Sailing Island Adventure will take you a little further out into the Bay of Thunder. Sail to the three picturesque islands known as the Welcome Islands. Only a short distance from the City, these Islands boast tall cliffs composed of sedimentary rock, a sheltered anchorage nestled within their cover, and an abundance of winged wildlife. Spot the Welcome Island Light House and the “Robert Fryer” shipwreck!

 

Enjoy a closer view of the iconic Sleeping Giant to the east, and the entire panorama of the city of Thunder Bay to the west. The best views of Thunder Bay are from the water! Looking South, wonder at the massive flat top mesas of Pie Island and the Nor’Wester Mountains. Relax and watch the cloud shadows silently roll across the stunning landscape. Our captains are knowledgeable and skilled interpretive guides and will point out landmarks and give you the opportunity to take photos on this Lake Superior Sailing Island Adventure. Please Note, we do not venture ashore on this excursion, but those who wish to swim may do so from the boat while at anchor.
