Captained Charters
Pick your adventure!!
Owner and veteran operated, Sail Ontario is one of the few sailing charter opportunities on Lake Ontario. Now in our sixth year and with over 150 charters, we know exactly how to deliver the sailing moments you deserve and expect! You’ll start your journey in historic downtown Sackets Harbor at Navy Point Marine.  We'll sail out toward Madison Barracks, named for President Madison and host to then 2nd Lieutenant Ulyses S. Grant and turn toward the lake. You’ll spend plenty of time on Lake Ontario, sail past the historic battlefield that saw action in 1812 and 1813, and have plenty of wind. 

At Sail Ontario, everything is included in our up-front pricing.
  • No per person charge; every charter is private
  • Paddleboard, kayak, snorkel gear are always available
  • Customer determined sail plan (with recommendations :)
  • Cold ice box with water and room for your stuff
  • Provisioned lunch (this option does have an additional cost) 

Sail Ontario is proud to honor our servicemen and women, past and present, and all first responders and law enforcement, with an automatic 10% discount on all services. Just enter MIL10 promo code at checkout.
