Captained full-day, half-day & evening sailboat rides among Lake Superior's beautiful Apostle Islands aboard our comfortable and roomy 34' sloop "Sarah's Joy". Enjoy hands-on or full relaxation sailing with our experienced & friendly captain (and former Coast Guardsman). Don't miss the boat!

Captain Paul provided a great sailing adventure of the Apostle Islands. Lake Superior is spectacular! The trip was very relaxing and educational. We will definitely be coming back.
