"Captain Greg Heroux is not only a gracious host but his stories and history of Thunder Bay and other sailing adventures made for an enjoyable evening feeling the cool breeze on the waters of Lake Superior. A must do when visiting Thunder Bay on a hot summer night". - Janice from Wichita, Kansas

Exploring Superior

"We went for five day sailing excursion aboard “Frodo” with Captain Greg of that proved very memorable. Our trip off the beaten  track took us from Thunder Bay across the open Lake Superior waters to Isle Royale, to explore its coves, fjords and islets by sailboat. Every night we would anchor at a diifferent (but equally beautiful) spot."

"We were very happy with our captain, who is not only a consummate professional, but also turned out to be a very interesting and knowledgeable travel companion." - Bernard from Boston, Massachusetts

Memorable Experience

"My husband and I have gone two years in a row to celebrate his birthday on Sail Superior's sunset cruise and it is still the only thing my husband looks forward to for his birthday. Originally from a big city, moving to Thunder Bay, it remains one of our most memorable experiences. We brought sushi aboard and wine, and sat at the front of a beautiful sailboat, hand in hand watching the waves go by and the sun go down. A must do in Thunder Bay!!" - June from Thunder Bay, Ontario
