Time Out Sailing – Duluth, MN

Feel free to lend a hand raising sails, have a turn at the helm, raise the Aerial Lift Bridge, or just sit back and enjoy the ride.

__

 

Time Out Sailing operates out of LakeHead Boat Basin on Park Point, just across the Aerial Lift Bridge, a short distance from Canal Park in Duluth, Minnesota. Our excursions explore Lake Superior and the St. Louis Bay Harbor, the world’s most inland port.

We are the only local sailboat charter to offer multi-night adventures. For private sailing trips, every aspect of your adventure can be personalized with Captain Jake- please let us know how we can accommodate your special occasions and requests!

Our vessel is equipped with current navigation equipment which allows us to sail in all types of weather conditions. Our Captains are all fully certified through United States Coast Guard. On Time Out, your safety is our top priority.

Discover the landmarks of Duluth’s historic waterfront or head offshore on the tall water and sail alongside Great Lakes freighters and ocean going ‘Salties’.

We are looking forward to taking you on “Time Out” on Lake Superior!
