Here are a few tips so you don’t miss out!
Muskoka Steamships are a part of the Muskoka Signature Experience Collection, a collection of Muskoka’s must-do experiences!
The Muskoka Steamships are true icons of Muskoka. The RMS Segwun, celebrating its 130th year, is North America’s oldest operating mail steamship and a symbol of Muskoka’s storied nautical past. The two ships will be busy over the next couple of weeks as visitors come from all over the world for their famed fall colour cruises.
