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

On a recent trip to Minneapolis, we decided to take a day trip to see Lake Superior. But we wanted to really experience the Great Lake. What better way than to take a sail. I had read about Captain Paul on the Forum and made arrangements for an afternoon trip. He is so friendly and a fountain of information about... More

We went on the 5:00pm-7:00pm sailing trip. Paul was the owner of the Sarah's Joy??? and our guide on our sailing trip. He was very informative, knew the history of area very well as well as the islands. We did not go very close to the islands and it was basically a sailing trip. It was very nice and so... More

If you want a leisurely sail around Bayfield or you want to learn more about sailing, then Animaashi and Captain Paul are as good as it gets. We went on a 2 hour sunset sail and we had a great time. As far as hosts go, Paul is as good as it gets and you will not do any better... More
