Cindy and the whole staff are amazing! I called to set a first time sailing experience for my wife's birthday. Cindy was very helpful in selecting a great boat for us and a captain to take us out for the day. We ended up sleeping on the boat in the harbor the day before and after our day trip so... More

We had a mixed bag of weather but enjoyed the places we visited in the islands as well as the people we met. This is a uniquely beautiful place to sail. The check out and check in went smoothly with the professional staff. I will sailagain soon.

I was part of a large group that chartered boats here in late August. We do this every year in different parts of the world, and I have to say that the service we received was on a par with any other charter company we have used. Cindy and her staff did an excellent job of providing us with information... More

Cindy - thank you so much for working with us on this trip. The bizzare gale force august weather really threw a wrench in our trip. Superior Charters was very supportive of our crew and even gave us generous extra time in order to allow us to dodge the weather. We had a terrific refresher course thanks to Gregg, he... More

Fortunately, the weather was great - sunny and clear! Unfortunately, this meant 2-4 mile per hour winds so we only sailed for 3-4 hours of 3 days. The boat was quite nice: clean, reasonably well kept up. We are novices in sailing so we had captain Dave skipper our trip: nice, chatty, easy to get along with and he had... More

Members of my family and I chartered a Jeanneau 509 during September 2013 and had a wonderful experience. We were fortunate that this particular boat required having a captain sail with us ... because as it turned out, Steve Frischmann is not only a highly skilled, multiple-country-certified, skipper ... but he's also a professional and entertaining musician ... and a...

We returned with a crew of 10 for a week aboard the magnificent 49' benneteau Sanctuary. We had a great time in varied wind over 25kts. Captain Dave spent a couple of hours making sure we knew the ropes. Then we were off round the islands for a week in the magnificent wilderness. We will be back.

I have used Superior Charters for many years. They have a amazing selection of boats. We are so lucky to have this asset. There doesn't seem to be a more complete sailboat charter business in the U.S. The marina is first rate. The Apostle Islands are such a beautiful place to sail. I usually charter for 4 days, but I...

We have sailed in the Apostle Islands since 2001 and, for the past 8 years (maybe more) while chartering a boat from Superior Charters. We always have boats that meet (and often exceed)our expectations as per the description on the website. The Apostle Islands are amazing. When we anchor, late afternoon, we take the dinghy to the nearby island and... More
