There is no other charter company like Superior Charters. Boats, top notch. Cleanliness, spotless. Support and check out crew, professional and knowledgeable. Cindy and office crew, customer focused. We have been chartering on Lake Superior for almost 30 years and Superior Charters is always the first choice. We look forward to to another 30 years.

This is the about the 6th time we have had a sailing adventure on the Ghost Rider with Captain Bob and Captain Gregg. Obviously we love it and come back again and again. It's a perfect way to enjoy the beauty of Superior along with an "island vibe". Captains Bob and Gregg add a lot of flavor to the trip... More

Cindy and the whole staff are amazing! I called to set a first time sailing experience for my wife's birthday. Cindy was very helpful in selecting a great boat for us and a captain to take us out for the day. We ended up sleeping on the boat in the harbor the day before and after our day trip so... More

I was part of a large group that chartered boats here in late August. We do this every year in different parts of the world, and I have to say that the service we received was on a par with any other charter company we have used. Cindy and her staff did an excellent job of providing us with information... More

Cindy - thank you so much for working with us on this trip. The bizzare gale force august weather really threw a wrench in our trip. Superior Charters was very supportive of our crew and even gave us generous extra time in order to allow us to dodge the weather. We had a terrific refresher course thanks to Gregg, he... More

Fortunately, the weather was great - sunny and clear! Unfortunately, this meant 2-4 mile per hour winds so we only sailed for 3-4 hours of 3 days. The boat was quite nice: clean, reasonably well kept up. We are novices in sailing so we had captain Dave skipper our trip: nice, chatty, easy to get along with and he had... More

Members of my family and I chartered a Jeanneau 509 during September 2013 and had a wonderful experience. We were fortunate that this particular boat required having a captain sail with us ... because as it turned out, Steve Frischmann is not only a highly skilled, multiple-country-certified, skipper ... but he's also a professional and entertaining musician ... and a...

We returned with a crew of 10 for a week aboard the magnificent 49' benneteau Sanctuary. We had a great time in varied wind over 25kts. Captain Dave spent a couple of hours making sure we knew the ropes. Then we were off round the islands for a week in the magnificent wilderness. We will be back.
