Day & Evening Sails


Day & Evening on the S/V Denis Sullivan are perfect for all ages!

Come aboard the world’s only three-masted re-creation of a 19th century Great Lakes cargo schooner! During this All-Ages/Family-Friendly 2-hour sail, you’ll be invited to help set the sails and take a turn at the helm. Or simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride while learning about Milwaukee’s rich maritime past.

All Day/Evening Sails are 2-Hours in length. Our Cancellation and Rescheduling Policies can be found further down this page. For further sail information, please see our 2017 Sullivan FAQ.

A sail may be cancelled if the captain thinks it is necessary to do so for reasons of safety. This is at his/her discretion. Normally we do NOT cancel due to rain or temperature. However, a sail may be cancelled due to severe storms, high wind, or fog advisories. If WE should cancel a sail, you may either reschedule your sail to a different date or receive a full refund. However, there is no refund if you simply choose not to show up, arrive late, or change your mind.
