What are YOU going to do this weekend?            July 17, 2012
Ontario By Boat

Take in all the beauty Ontario has to offer this summer. And what better way to do it than on a boat cruise? Spend the summer days cruising the lakes and seeing the sites, ‘cause nothing beats a relaxing day on the water. All aboard!

Soak up the sun as you cruise around the islands, or feel the wind in your hair aboard the WildCat going 45 miles per hour.  Both options will show you the islands, cottages, lighthouses and even castles.

On the Midland cruise, you can see the pine trees and rocky shores of the Thirty Thousand Islands. Or leave from Barrie, and enjoy a meal as you sightsee. Explore the beautiful cottages and important landmarks in the region. Whether you’re looking for man-made or nature-made attractions, boat cruises are the way to go.

Tour the islands up in Georgian Bay and  see the beauty of the Thirty Thousand Island region on these three story cruise ships.  The morning cruise shows you the grand summer retreats up north, while afternoon cruises takes you to the wilderness of the outer islands. Spend the day and do them both!

Be sure to bring your appetite when you come aboard this cruise. They offer lunch or dinner, with windows by each table so you can enjoy the sites as you enjoy your meal.  So pull up a chair and see the amazing views in Caledonia.

Come see the sites on the Double Decker cruise ship named "The Woodman". You can grab a bite or see a show - Elvis, the Beach Boys, Neil Young – there are lots of different shows planned for this summer. No matter what you choose, the scenic views as you sail down the water will always be spectacular.

Get out in a boat while the good weather lasts. We’ve got even more ways to get you out on the water. Check out Boat & Train Excursions to help plan your next day out on the waves.
