Top Three Reasons to Sail Aboard the Avanti

July 31, 2016

thumbnail_IMG_4543Are your feet tired after that long hike to Carlton Peak? Do you have an hour to spare before your date at the Waves of Superior Spa and no way to pass the time? Whatever your story, few things could be better than a memorable two hour journey aboard Bluefin Bay Family of Resort’s chartered sailing boat, the Avanti. Here are a few reasons why:


1. The view, of course! Usually reserved for pelicans and seagulls only, the view of your favorite lakeside unit framed by the sloping Sawtooth Mountain range is sure to amaze.

2. You’re one of the crew! No eye patch or peg leg required. Captain Nathaniel and his sturdy team are more than enough manpower for your average sail, but the opportunity to take the wheel or help pull up the mainsail might just come your way.

3. The wind in your sails! Get energized by the unique feeling of the water beneath you, a cold root beer in hand and a once in a lifetime story in your pocket. Whether calm or wavy waters greet you, Lake Superior will leave you breathless.

There you have it! The Avanti sails three times per day at 10:00 am, 1:30 pm, and 4:30 pm and the cost is $43.20 for guests and $48.00 for non guests. Welcome aboard!
