Harbor North Charters takes pride in offering the oldest and most complete charter service on Lake Erie. With our extensive fleet ranging from day sailors to offshore cruisers, we are able to match the proper boat to the type of sailing you desire. By having our own maintenance program and repair facilities, our boats are always in excellent, seaworthy condition. A list of recommended U.S. Coast Guard licensed captains is available for charter or sailing instruction. Captain’s fees are $240 a day. Prior to boarding, your boat will be completely serviced and supplied with the initial fuel, water, galley utensils and ice. Each boat has a complete inventory of safety and navigational equipment to insure all Coast Guard requirements are met. All you need to bring is linen, clothes and food. To add to your enjoyment, dinghies are available upon request.
