There’s no denying that one of the most popular attractions in Duluth is the beautiful, sparkling blue waters of Lake Superior. Beyond these beautiful shores, rocky cliffs and pristine forests, with their miles of trails, are just begging to be explored and enjoyed. In between, you’ll find the rugged town of Duluth itself, which is actually a thriving community filled with art galleries, museums, and live performance venues, unique shops, breweries, and plenty of delicious restaurants to enjoy. This summer, take the time to get out on the water and go boating on Lake Superior. You won’t regret it! Whether by a charter fishing boat, a sailing cruise, whitewater rafting, canoeing, kayaking, or even paddle boarding, there are plenty of ways to get out and enjoy Duluth’s top attraction.

Boating on Lake Superior
Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes, is the giant blue backdrop to Duluth, and at the heart of just about everything we love most about Duluth. Even our locally crafted beers have their beginnings in the fresh, cold water of Lake Superior. This summer is the perfect time to go boating on the lake. Whether you’d rather rent (or bring your own), or join in a guided cruise of lake superior, there are plenty of options for boating in Duluth. Here are a few of our favorite ways to get out on the water:
- Paddleboarding is the fastest growing watersport in the country, and we can see why. It’s challenging, but it’s tons of fun, and relatively quick and easy to learn. It’s a great way to get a close-up view of the water and explore all of your favorite parts of Lake Superior. You can rent or bring our own paddleboard, or you can join a guide to take you around and show you some highlights of Lake Superior. North Shore SUP is a great place to get started.
- Just like Paddleboarding, Kayaking and canoeing offer you a great opportunity to get up close and personal with Lake Superior. We think The Duluth Experience offers a great guided kayaking trip, and have partnered with them over the past several years, as we seek to offer our guests the ultimate experiences in our rugged city.
- Hop on board a local sailboat or harbor cruise, and sit back and relax while you take in the views. There are several companies that offer day cruises, including Vista Fleet, Time Out Sailing, and Amicus Adventure Sailing.
- Take a charter fishing boat, and enjoy some of the best fishing in Minnesota. Top charter companies include I’d Rather be Fishing, Happy Hooker Charters, Action Fishing Charters, Team Crush Outdoors, and Optimum Charters.
