Places you don't often get a chance to visit

BATTLE ISLAND Not too far from the community of Rossport lies Battle Island and there we can find a most majestic lighthouse. Climb to the summit and view the island and endless expanse of lake (that could be mistaken for a sea)  For a better description please go to the Battle Island Lighthouse's Site.  The Superior Rocket Zodiac will be doing regular departures from the Rossport dock July 31st at 4,5,& 6 PM And All day on the 1st of August 2022.

I have endless gratitude for Leanne as she kept us safe, taught us more than I thought possible on a 7 day journey and most of all, we had a blast. Since we can't have Leanne on the boat with us now, in any situation I will refer back to the sticker I mounted in the cockpit 'WWLD' (What Would Leanne Do?). If you're looking to learn how to sail or have a proper adventure, Sail Superior will not disappoint.
