Captain Bob and “Admiral” Kathryn and their pup Pickles are the most kind and welcoming crew you could ever want. The boat is a piece of history that they have lovingly preserved. Only six people can go at a time and all you need is a reservation. Water, soft drinks, wine and beer are available and you are invited to bring snacks and drinks. We had the best time and learned so much about the history of the islands, swimming bears and deer, and shared laughs. Thank you for a wonderful sail.

Sailing with Captain Bob was the highlight of our Bayfield vacation. He graciously allowed our aged dog on the boat. We spent the afternoon sailing, enjoying the sunny day, and each other's company. It was just like sailing with an old friend.

We went out with Captain Bob for the sunset cruise and had so much fun. There were 5 of us - new to sailing and some were a bit nervous. Captain Bob is the guy to be with if there is any hesitation. We enjoyed the conversation, the wine and the beautiful sunset. If you are visiting the Bayfield area, getting out on Lake Superior is a must. Highly recommend choosing Manitou.

My husband Jeff and I visit Bayfield every summer. We have shared a special love of Lake Superior. Our trip with Captain Bob was one of the most special of all! This lovely wood hull was just pure joy. We went out with just one other couple , so it was quit small group . THIS IS YHE BEST WAY TO SEE SUPERIOR!
