The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore was Incorporated into the National Park System in 1970 and claims some of the most pristine waters in the world. The picturesque cliffs and caves have become a popular sailing destination for travelers from around the world. With ample fishing, kayaking, hiking, camping, sailing, and swimming, the Apostle Islands offer a variety of ways to navigate your vacation: from a boat tour of the lighthouses, a sunny day jumping off monolithic rocks on Stockton island into the refreshing clear waters, or relaxing on the boat while fireworks dapple the night sky from surrounding towns on Independence Day in Chequamegon Bay, these stunning islands await you.
Most of the islands have wonderful hiking trails of different levels of difficulty, a perfect way to explore and stretch your legs!
Yes Lake Superior is cold, but it's also refreshing, rejuvenating and sparkling clean! A must do treat while sailing with Nauti Adventures.
The Apostle Islands harbor the largest collection of lighthouses in the world. A necessity for past mariners, a treat to see for current ones!
With a total of 22 islands in this island collective, the Apostle Islands has some of the most beautiful and secluded anchorages in the world.
A newer attraction to the area, which is odd because they were created some 100,000 years ago, the rock formations here are a must see.
It's not all sailing, water and islands while on your sailing vacation, there are also two villages to explore and sightsee through.
Whether enjoying a libation while sailing through the islands, or visiting the world famous Tom's Burnt Down Bar, it's five O'clock while on charter!
One of the most spectacular parts of sailing in these private islands are the beautiful, sugar sand, secluded beaches. Romance at it's finest!
We know this isn't for everyone, but pulling in a monster lake trout from the cool waters of Lake Superior is pretty remarkable.
There is nothing you NEED to do while aboard Nauti Adventures, but if learning to sail interests you, our handsome Captain and show you the ropes. Pun intended!
There is so much to see and take in while traveling here. You can tour historic fishing camps, lighthouses, stone quarries and Indian burial grounds from thousands of years ago.
With no light pollution filling the sky, the stargazing is second to none in the Apostle Islands, including the Northern Lights! Definitely one of the highlights our charter guests enjoy.
