Offshore Adventures sailing charters, Port Elgin, Ontario



We are the sailing charter company that takes you offshore to view stunning sunsets, experience the wind in the sails, and explore the islands of Lake Huron. Whether you like serene sunbathing on the deck of a ship, or adventurous sailing on cresting waves, we can customize your sailing experience.


Sailing on the Cat offers a number of exciting activities that range from swimming, sunbathing, hiking, island hopping, and fishing to bird watching.

The island cruises include bird watching from the deck at historic Chantry Island or swimming off the shores of the secluded and beautiful Fishing islands.

Chantry Island, a federal bird sanctuary featuring an ancient lighthouse and keeper's lodge is full of history and wildlife.

The romantic Fishing Islands feature walking trails and soft white sand beaches with crystal blue swimming waters.

You can choose one of our standard cruises or charters or you can request a quote on a custom cruise to the destination of your choice. Call 519-389-4828 for more information today.
