Paul, our Captain tried to give us a good sailing tour of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands but the wind was not cooperating. So a 3 hr tour was about 11/2 hrs too long. We certainly new it was not Paul's fault but we just sat too much. Wonder if we couldn't have motored more to allow us to... More

This is a long review, but stay with me here. I am a complete land-lubber. It's terra firma for me. I'm a Leo - that's a water-hating cat AND a sun (fire) sign. I told my ever-patient husband that IF the temp reached 80 and IF there wasn't a cloud in the sky and IF Lake Superior shrunk to the... More

On July 7th, 2014, we took our fourth half-day sailing trip with Captain Paul, aboard Sarah's Joy. This trip was just like the first three...fantastic! I cannot recommend a sailing trip with Animaashie Sailing enough. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

I took my parents and 11 year old out for a day on Paul's sailboat last year. We were just discussing this weekend what a great time we had and what a great "people person" he is. He let anyone who was interested take the wheel. He is very knowledgeable about the area, sailing, and lots of other things. This... More

My husband and I took a 3-hour afternoon tour on Sarah's Joy. We thought about doing a boat trip on the bigger, motorized boat, but we both had never been sailing and we much preferred being on a smaller boat with one other couple than a large boat with a hundred people, all jostling for the best seat! Captain Paul... More

We had five people in our sailing group and we sailed in and around the Apostle islands out of Bayfield, Wi. It was a great time and well worth the $70 each that we paid for the 3 hours. Paul is retired USCG and knows how to sail and knows what the history is and what the locals are doing... More

My parents and I chartered a tour with Captain Paul on "Sarah's Joy" for his evening sailing trip (5-7pm). What a fantastic time! He took us around the Apostle Islands and Bayfield. He was so incredibly informative and knew so much about the area and history of the area as well. He is also extremely fun to sail with! He... More

On July 14th, 2012 me and my wife Cathy chartered Captain Paul to Come Sail Away with us on his 34 foot sail boat called, "Sarah's Joy" setting a open course for the seas of Lake Superior in Bayfield, WI. Captain Paul literally showed us how to tie the knot as we set sail and turned our visions of dreams... More

Had a great day on Lake Superior with Capt. Paul. We went out with another couple and booked a day trip. Would highly recommend Animaashi Sailing Co.

This is our second family trip to the Bayfield. We have seen alot of what the area has to offer. Our 2 hour trip with Capt. Paul was by far the most interesting and informative! As he pulls out into the lake,points the vessle in the proper direction,cuts the small gas engine and drops sail, you know it is going... More
