My teen daughter and I wanted to do something different during our mother-daughter weekend to Duluth and this was perfect! This was the first time we had been sailing and Captain Dave and First Mate Gary were wonderful! They explained things to us, they were friendly and funny, and most importantly, they made us feel safe. We had a fantastic... More

Our trip with Jim was quite possibly one of the best adventures we have had. His experience was comforting as it allowed us to enjoy sailing on a windy day with higher waves. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It felt more like a day on the lake with a friend versus a canned tourist attraction. I would strongly recommend this excursion.

We booked the lake Superior tour, and even though there was hardly any wind on the lake, we had a wonderful time. The crew were incredibly attentive and friendly, instantly putting everybody at ease. The views were breathtaking. Highly recommended!

Jim W, the owner, was our captain and he was great to talk to. The sailing experience was fun and exciting. He offered us coats to keep warm out on the water, chatted with us, gave us some quiet time to ourselves out on the front of the boat, and made sure our experience was all around pleasant and fun....

In August we had the most amazing experience ever and it was sailing with Captain Jim. Sailing is the most peaceful and free feeling. We had a nice breeze yet Jim made it seem so easy. Loved the whole adventure and highly recommend it with Moon Shadow.

This a GREAT way to experience Lake Superior! Beautiful boat and great staff. This is an excellent way to spend a day with the family or for a romantic night or day out on the lake and allows you to do something a little more private than the Vista.

Most relaxing afternoon! Captain took a small group out for the afternoon, great mix of relaxation, boat and Duluth knowledge, and excitement. Would go again in a heart beat.

We booked the 3.5 hour sunset cruise with Moon Shadow and had a great experience, shared with just one other couple. Dave, the captain, and Greg were knowledgeable and friendly, and made it easy to learn some sailing basics (and even not so basics). All four passengers took turns steering and giving tacking commands, and we got to haul on... More

Grandson wanted to sail under the lift bridge. He not only did that but help drive the boat while we headed out into Lake Superior. We had an afternoon we will never forget!!

My son and three grandsons sailed with Captain Jim Neumann on a 3 hour excursion on July 20, 2015. This was our second annual trip. We all learned a lot about sailing with direct hands on experience. Each grandson, ages 17-14--9, took the helm and sailed the boat. This wasn't a passive boat ride, but an adventure not soon to... More
