Witnessing the gales on Lake Superior is one of the iconic experiences on Minnesota’s North Shore. Late October, November, and December are the best times to see the biggest wave show as the cold, dry air from the north meet the moist, warm air from the Gulf. Wind speeds often reach 50 mph with gusts that have been known to exceed 70 mph. You’ll be mesmerized as the huge waves repeatedly crash into the shore.
SPECIAL OFFER! When nature puts on a show, you want a front row seat and there is no better place to watch the gales roll in than from the Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts. When you stay three nights at any of our resorts (Bluefin Bay, Surfside or Temperance Landing) on the Gales Special, one of those nights of Lake Superior splendor is our treat! Stay three nights and receive one of the midweek nights FREE! This great offer starts October 21 and runs through December 24, 2018.
Relaxing in your accommodations and watching the waves roll in is a favorite activity this time of year, but there are lots of other adventures and events that you may want to take advantage of. During your stay, sign-up for a complimentary resort activity like a variety of guided hikes, yoga, winery shuttles, Saturday Kids Club, plus resort amenities like indoor and an outdoor (heated!) pool, nightly bonfires with s’mores, board games and movie rentals. Once the snow flies we also offer complimentary rentals of snowshoes, cross-country skis, ice trekkers for hiking, ice skates, and hockey equipment.
