Thunder Bay – Sail Superior Zodiac Power Boat Tour To Porphyry Island Lighthouse

Not the best weather. Choppy water and rain at the island did not allow for lots of photography. Plus the boat travels extremely fast. Sail Superior  website.

Trip worth it and I plan on going out next summer again, hopefully on a sunny day. Porphyry Island Provincial Park.

    Im pretty sure the Thunder Bay harbour has a legal speed limit of 30 kph, and the harbour limits are all the way to the sleeping giant/ pie island etc..

    Im not complaining, just an observation.

    excellent pictures, any insight on the cost of such a cool trip? age limits?
