Time Out Sailing operates out of LakeHead Boat Basin on Park Point.  We’re just across the Aerial Lift Bridge and Canal Park. 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 crew 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 fully licensed through the United States Coast Guard and 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’.

Whatever the weather brings, we look forward to hosting you aboard Time Out and sail on Lake Superior!
