ABOUT THE BOAT Once the boat leaves the dock, you’ll feel your everyday life and cares slip away. Named for the Greek god of wind, Aeolos I, and also for a boat of that name which her owners have chartered out of Athens, Greece, Aeolos is 32’7” of fun. She is a stable and comfortable boat with a spacious cockpit and cabin. The main cabin is well lit and ventilated. The aft cabin has four opening ports and a berth larger than a queen size bed. You’ll find hot and cold running water, a refrigerator, propane stove, private head (toilet), and all required safety equipment on board.
AWAY... Sit back and relax or lend a hand and
learn the ropes if you’d like. Our goal is to provide you
with a friendly, casual, and relaxing excursion. Along the
way we’ll be glad to share our knowledge of local history
and introduce you to some of our favorite landmarks.
Your itinerary will vary according to your interests and current weather conditions and may include:
A cruise along the North Shore ~ take a peek at London Road mansions, Lake Superior’s rocky shoreline, and the mouths of the Lester, French, Talmadge, and Knife rivers.
A triangle course, from Duluth out under the Aerial Lift Bridge, up the North Shore, over to Superior, WI, and back.
A harbor cruise, with a closer look at
landmarks from the past and present, grain elevators, iron
ore and coal docks, Great Lakes freighters, foreign ships
