With a fleet of over 40 privately owned sailboats and powerboats, we offer a unique opportunity to sail in the protected waters of the Apostle Islands on Lake Superior. Sail among the 22 islands, of which 21 make up the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. From 27' boats that are comfortable for a couple to 50' yachts for a group of friends, we have boats that meet every need.
In 2014 we celebrate the anniversary of our 35th season in operation with the largest sailboat and powerboat charter fleet in one harbor in the U.S. In 2008 we added our yacht sales division, Superior Yacht Sales, and became the exclusive dealer for Jeanneau sailboats on Lake Superior and surrounding states. We also provide brokerage services and represent a selection of fresh water brokerage boats. In 2010 we added Island Packet Yachts to our product lines. In addition, we offer a unique opportunity to 'Try Before You Buy' and charter a late model Jeanneau or Island Packet Yacht.
Family owned and operated since 1979, Superior Charters provides our clientele outstanding charter boat service with a unique offering of wilderness cruising in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore on Lake Superior. Located on the south shore of Lake Superior in Bayfield, Wisconsin, the gateway to the 22 islands of the Apostle Islands, Superior Charters offers a sailing and boating charter experience unmatched anywhere.
