Sponsored by the City of Thunder Bay

With the world’s largest freshwater lake at the foot of the city, it doesn’t take much effort to get out on the water. Haul in the anchor, trim the sails and feel the power of the wind push your sleek craft toward a horizon of adventure. Being out on the open water with just the sound of the wind, calling birds and the laughter of your crewmates is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a day.

Thunder Bay offers a wide range of sailing environments and a whole host of boat rental and charter services. No matter your level of experience, this is the place to set a course.
