About Us

3rd Coast Charters is a sister company to 3rd Coast Cruising. We've had so much fun on our annual Bluewater Magellan trips over the years that we decided to invest in our own catamaran.


We offer private sailing charters on Lake Michigan in the summer and in the winter we take the boat somewhere warm to offer multi-day cruises.


Throughout all the growth and change, one thing will always remain the same: our commitment to providing the best sailing experience possible. Whether it's local or tropical—we want you to love sailing as much as we do and will do our best to make sure you have a great time!
