Boating on Lake Superior

As more people turn to the waters of Lake Superior for fishing and boating, the importance of boating safety can't be overemphasized.

Lake Superior, the Twin Ports harbor and lower St. Louis River offer a variety of boating experience not found elsewhere on Minnesota waters. Yet, this exciting contrast of quiet backwaters, the busy international seaport and awesome inland sea requires a mastery of small boat seamanship, a thorough knowledge of piloting rules and equipment regulations, a sharp eye for the weather and the lifelong habit of safe boating practices.
