Captain John Bloomquist, at your service. If you require a Coast Guard Licensed Captain to take you and yours on a bare boat charter or you are unsure of the waters in and around the Apostle Islands or Chequamegon Bay region let us help. We are available by the half day or longer periods. Longer Lake Superior sails/cruises are a possible depending on previous bookings. Also contact www.superiorcharters.com , www.pikesbaymarina.com or www.sailboats-inc.com All are Bayfield marinas that can arrange captained charters and will contact me of your preferences.
Should you want to take a short or extended vacation trip via boat and do not want the hassle of handling charts, GPS waypoints, depths, channels, markers, anchorages and navigation and weather hazards ... let us allow you to focus on the relaxation portion of your adventure.
Need a boat transported to another port via water? Maybe we can help you out. References/experience available on request. We have traversed all of the Great Lakes.
We retain Coast Guard 100 ton Master licenses with endorsements for auxiliary sail, power and towing. Also our Marine Radio license and Coast Guard Required first aid and CPR training are current. Passenger number is only limited by the capacity of the boat you own or charter up to 100 tons.
Primary interests the past years have been in multiple-mast schooners, however, we have power experience with tour boats, water taxi service and boat shuttles around the Apostle Islands, northern most in Wisconsin waters of Lake Superior...windsurfing, kayaking, scuba and canoeing there are also lake related diversions.
Depending on booked boating commitments, we shuttle boats. 2003 shuttles include a 46 foot Post from Portland, Connecticut (click previous words) through the New York Canal system and the Great Lakes on its 1500 water mile destination to Bayfield, Wisconsin. In 2004 a shuttle from Milwaukee, of 800 plus miles, became a learning-to-maneuver-navigate and-dock experience for the owner of a 38 foot OAL brand spanking new Silverton Convertible (click the previous words) to Pike's Bay Marina.
