Had a great morning cruise on Lake Superior. We called last minute and were able to secure a last minute reservation. Very comfortable boat with great hospitality from our Captin. Will come back again. Great value for a personal experience.

Six of us sailed with Jim on the Makena at 5PM. Very relaxing, drank margaritas with snacks. Received a lot of history facts and tips on sailing. Very relaxing and enjoyable. I will be coming back with my husband on the next trip. Char L.
