Down Easter 38 Ketch
Journeyer is a Down Easter two mast ketch. She was made in 1975 in the state of California. Journeyer is a comfortable coastal cruiser that has loads of deck space. She is used for harbour sailing tours, wine and cheese cruises and Welcome Islands excursions. She was retrofitted in 2010. The diesel engine was replaced with a silent and more eco-friendly electric engine. The electric engine limits her range so this is why we use her in and just outside of the harbour. Easy to operate and sail in all conditions, her classic wood trim look and two mast design make her a beautiful boat to look at and cruise on. When we first got her, she was used as a bed and breakfast.
A Jonmeri 40 built in Finland, Frodo is a true blue water cruiser/racer. Frodo has braved trans-Atlantic crossings in 2004/5 and sailed on the North Atlantic in September from St. John’s to Lisbon. She is able to keep you safe on the waters of Superior’s rugged Canadian shore, no matter what the conditions. Frodo can comfortably and safely take you anywhere on the lake. She is a versatile vessel and used for all of our tours and adventures. Enjoy a relaxing and scenic harbour sailing tour, a romantic evening or get together with friends and family on our wildly popular Wine and Cheese Cruises. Venture further on a more adventurous excursion out to the nearby Welcome Islands. Get a taste of Lake Superior and see the picturesque Islands, maybe keep going across the bay to the Sleeping Giant where 1200 foot high cliffs await to challenge you on the Hike the Giant excursion.
Top Speed: 60 mph
The Superior Rocket is a 12 passenger Zodiac Hurricane. “Zodiac” is a trade name for a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) or Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB). The Rocket is constructed of aluminium and ringed with large air-filled tubes. Super fast, lightweight, durable and incredibly seaworthy. Canadian forces and most militaries around the world use Zodiacs on their missions. Just think of James Bond. There is almost always a chase scene with a RIB. Top speeds of 80 km/h What does 80 km/h really mean? Time! More time to explore your destination. Less time driving or in some cases sailing; Spar Island, Porphyry Light House, Silver Islet, the Sleeping Giant. See the entire harbour and the Kaministiqua river, round the big lakers and salties in the Bay, and still be back in town for the great food and drink Thunder Bay is known for.
