This was the highlight of our vacation. My daughter and I went on the 2 hour sunset sail and it was wonderful. Captain Jake tailored the sailing to our comfort level, which was fairly fast, the equivalent of about 20 mph. We went out to where the Traverse Bay was 312 feet deep - this was serious sailing!

We booked online as a last minute trip around August 21, 2012. Captain Jake called back and let us know the boat was available the next day and we took it based on the tripadvisor reviews. It was a wonderful time both exciting and relaxing. The Captain provided interesting conversation and explanations of sailing and sites around the bay during... More

We recently traveled to Traverse City with another couple for a weekend away. We made reservations with Captain Jake a month in advance and even have emails confirming the reservation and with instructions from him on where to meet. The day of our much-anticipated sailing trip, we were left on the dock with no Captain. When we called, he said... More

Her reservation unfortunately was deleted from the system. As you can see from the rest of the reviews this has never happened and have never had anything but a great experience as advertised. I did call her right away and apologized, and offered a free cruise to make up for this unfortunate situation. I never heard back from her. Sorry... More

My boyfriend and I went on a sunset sail last Tuesday night. It was a wonderful experience. Captain Jake was terrific. The boat is beautiful. The sunset was incredible. We brought our own appetizers and wine and enjoyed a very private evening.......just the two of us. We enjoyed every second. Would sail again in a heartbeat. Definitely a highlight of... More

My parents used to sail before they had kids. To celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary, my sister and I thought it would be fun to take them on the Power Island sail with Captain Jake. The morning of the sail, the weather looked a little foreboding. Captain Jake called to check on "what kind of group we had going out."... More

WOW, What a great sail we had! The captain was excellent with our eight year old son, teaching and encouraging in safe and supportive way. I am sure this would be an unforgetable UPNORTH experience for any family or group! Thanx so much! Mike and Laura Manack Poolesville MD

If you are looking for an authentic sailing experience on a beautiful sailboat and some great views of the area, then don't miss this! We had some great wind conditions and a great time.

We had a great experience last week with Captain Jake. We called him last minute and even though he was not planning to sail that day made time for us and we had a great time. Unfortunately, the wind was not on our side that day but Captain Jake was fun to talk with and we still had a wonderful... More

Wonderful sail. The captain customized our trip and let us do as much or little as we wanted. He was entertaining, informative and a great sailor. He'll sail to your level of comfort. We preferred sailing as close to the wind as possible. Most fun I had in Traverse City.
