Description

There's no better way to experience all that happens on the St Mary's River, than aboard a schooner.

On this 5 day trip aboard Schooner Huron Jewel to Sault Ste Marie, MI via the Soo Locks, we'll get to see freighters making their way along the shipping channel and lots of spectacular scenery. Bring your camera and binoculars as there will be lots to see along the way!

Passengers will board the night prior to departure. The first morning we will set sail from Drummond Island and go up the St Mary's River, through Lake George and anchor off Sugar Island for the night. The next morning we'll go to the Locks, which we will go through.

We'll tie up in Sault Ste. Marie, MI. A full day will be spent at the dock and you will be free to explore. A visit to the Soo Locks Visitors' Center is a must to understand how the locks work, the history of the locks and to fully appreciate how vital the locks are to national and international shipping and commerce.

We'll then go through the Locks again, southbound this time and ride the wind and current back towards Drummond.

Since downbound is with the current we may be able to make good time and head to the DeTour Reef Lighthouse and then anchor on the southeast side of Drummond in Whitney Bay. The final morning we'll up anchor and head back Drummond Island's Yacht Haven.
