Where you'll be

The tour takes place at Sandy Beach which locals consider their secret beach site on Superior. The sand is fine, the water is shallow and warm (during July & August) and often we are the only ones on site. If we time it right, we may just have to go for a dip in the lake or capture photos of the one-of-a-kind Superior sunsets.
