Welcome to Amicus Adventure Sailing!  We are a family-owned charter sailing business on Lake Superior's north shore.

We do different types of sailing for all types of people.  Day sails on glassy seas, group excursions, romantic anniversary sails, corporate team-building days, family overnights, heavy weather sailing, Isle Royale circumnavigation--whatever your comfort level, skills, age, and abilities, we have something for you.    We are available  year -round.  Call or email us!  We'd love to make your sailing dreams happen.



1. UPDATE 10/19:  Fall is still here!  With a delayed peak we are still seeing fantastic colors along the shoreline.  Further inland, the peak has definitely passed.  Believe it or not, we are still scheduling day sails.  This weekend we will be gone but we will be back in business on October 24, weather permitting. The more flexible you can be with date and times, the more likely we are to get out there.  At this time of year, crisp fall breezes are what we aim for, rather than the heavier winds not appropriate to day sails.  When it works, fall sailing is a great favorite so don't hesitate to schedule something--just be aware that more sails are postponed and cancelled.

2. We are sailors but we are also hikers!  We do a lot of hiking along the north shore in the fall.  Feel free to contact us anytime in fall or winter for advice on how and where to recreate here, given current conditions.  We take groups on guided hikes and snowshoe expeditions, and we offer free advice for those who want to go on their own.

3. Give a experience of a lifetime!  Perfect for people who are difficult to buy for,  Gift Certificates are available year-round and can be redeemed anytime; the gift recipients schedules the sail at their convenience.

4. Thinking about a multi-day sail with us?  Check out the North House Folk School Catalog for next year's trips.  Think ahead--they fill quickly! 

Overnights--call us directly.  We continue to schedule trips according to need so don't assume everything is full.

  5.  Follow us on our blog to learn more about what we do.  Feedback, commentary, and just plain reflections are always welcome on our Facebook page or via personal email
