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 sailboat charter in Duluth. All tours are private, so you and your group will have the boat all to your selves!
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 a “Time Out” on Lake Superior!
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.
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, or explore the open water; your day on Lake Superior will be as unique and exciting as you’d like. Come boat like a local and experience the lake they way they do. Water and soft drinks will be available onboard.

As a life long resident of Duluth, I thought I had tried everything Duluth had to offer. That is, until I experienced the serene beauty of Duluth's shoreline from my "Time Out" sailing adventure. It was fabulous! And I was like a little kid again when Captain Jake let me take the wheel while we sailed under the famous Duluth Ariel Lift Bridge with hundreds of "fans" waving at us as we passed through the boat canal. I was in 7th heaven!
Gracious hosts with immense knowledge of Lake Superior. Their years of experience is obvious as they always seem to know the best place to go depending on the conditions. Each day was a new adventure with beautiful islands and deserted beaches to choose from for our next destination. Jake and Kelly sail the boat with skill and ease, never missing a chance to share the history of places you cruise by. They happily handed over the wheel and ropes to allow us the full experience of sailing. Our trip withTime Out will never be forgotten and we hope to return for another trip soon.
Sailing with Time Out is a wonderful experience. We sailed the Apostle Islands with them and had an unforgettable time. They are very knowledgeable, down to earth and were so accommodating, ensuring that we were able to see and explore all the wonderful things Lake Superior has to offer.
