Skippered Sailboat Rides Lake Superior

Each sailing vessel has an American Sailing Association instructor aboard who will sail the boat and work with interested guests to let them sail and control the boat as much as possible.

Northern Breezes offers skippered rides on our spectacular sailboats. A skippered ride is a great way to get out on the water with family or friends and an experienced skipper to show you the ropes.
