    This is a wilderness adventure so the wind and weather ,including fog, may force us to alter the routing. Seaplane landing delays can be expected if this happens.


  • Sail a 40-ft sloop on Lake Superior, the Great Inland Sea. Take the helm and experience the rhythm of the water.
  • Sail past the Sleeping Giant, which rises 1200 feet above the water. It looks almost Jurassic.
  • Overnight at anchor at the foot of the Giant, in Tee Harbour, a once thriving fishing camp. Smell that BBQ grilling today's catch – if you were that lucky.
  • Sail past the site of the once richest silver mine in the world. Learn the lore of how it was lost to the lake one stormy winter.
  • Enjoy a scenic seaplane flight over Lake Superior upon your return to Thunder Bay.


Trip Info

Price is per group of maximum 4 people. Experience the crystal clear waters and magnificent vistas of the world’s largest freshwater lake. Sail by the Welcome Islands and the famous Sleeping Giant. Overnight at the foot of the Giant, light up the BBQ and enjoy the alluring aromas as you sit back, relax and marvel at the breathtaking Milky Way stars twinkling brightly overhead. The next day we’ll continue on to Edward Island in Black Bay, sailing to an anchorage in a sheltered bay where you’ll be picked up by the Wilderness North seaplane. The seaplane flight will show you the same beautiful lake but from a very different perspective before returning you to Thunder Bay.

Your adventure awaits!
