Summer is here and I highly suggest a trip on the Penetanguishene 3000 Island Cruises. Take a 3.5 hour ride on the MS Georgian Queen. I have taken visitors on this trip several times and we always had a wonderful time.
The captain is full of interesting facts about the area and has a great sense of humour as well!
There is limited food and beer and wine available for purchase- you can bring your own snack if you wish. That is what I do every time I go on a boat trip. They are one of my favorite ways to see a city.
The reason to go on this boat ride is for the unparalleled beauty of Georgian Bay! it truly is breathtaking. Every passenger seems thrilled at the waters and rocky shorelines.
The boat could certainly use a new coat of paint and the interior could be freshened up – but I spend my time out on deck the entire time- I often experience the same type of conditions on boats- its all part of the atmosphere to me.
One piece of advice- bring a sweater and a hat. The wind can pick up and the clouds can roll in quickly. Also remember to bring sunscreen – and gravol if you need it.
They have evening boat tours as well –
The boat tour also holds special occasions cruises from time to time – such as Jazz BBQ. Check the schedule at their website!
For 2014 the rates are $27 for adults and $11 for kids and they have special family packages and rates for seniors. My advice is make a reservation and take a boat ride with scenery you will never forget.
