What is Micro Cruising?

Micro cruising is doing what the big cruise lines do but on a smaller vessel with a bit more personalized setting. Departures out of Thunder Bay showcase some of the very best of Lake Superior’s Canadian waters. Chose the S/V Welcome catamaran which is for larger families with lots of space put to eight guests or chose the S/V Frodo monohull for two- four guests for a true sailboat adventure.

Our adventures are three to seven days and  packed with traditional saunas, jutting cliff-faces, quaint coastal towns and cascading waterfalls, every mile is a memory. Have you been to, The Sleeping Giant, Silver Islet, Otter Cove waterfalls, Spain island Sauna, Red Rock, Rossport, Battle Island or seen the woodland caribou on an island created from a meteorite strike?  We'll take you there.

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.
