There’s a lot to see just outside Duluth’s Harbor – Head out under the Aerial Lift Bridge and explore the North Shore’s landscape and history. Cruise the world’s longest freshwater beach, travel past the Superior Entry lighthouse, or complete your circumnavigation “around the horn” of Minnesota’s Park Point through the St. Louis Harbor. Customized meals from local favorite Lake Avenue Café are available upon booking!
Why limit your time on the water when there’s so much to see? Whether you anchor for lunch off a sandy beach and take the paddle boards for a spin, cruise a distance up the North Shore, explore the open water, or drop a line for fishing, your day on Lake Superior will be as unique and exciting as you’d like. We will provide an appetizer. Water and soft drinks will be available onboard.
Looking for a relaxing way to cap off a great day and ease into a worry-free evening on Lake Superior?
