Island Queen Cruise
9 Bay Street, Parry Sound
Enjoy a captain’s-eye view of Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands, the largest concentration of freshwater islands in the world, aboard the Island Queen. Two and three-hour sightseeing cruises bring passengers surprisingly up-close to the pristine beauty of Georgian Bay’s remote wilderness and the rustic charm of its grand summer cottages.
Guest capacity is currently reduced aboard the Island Queen with physical distancing measures in place using directional arrows and floor markers. In addition to the standard sanitizing measures, they will not only be elevating the awareness and education of their crew members, but will also be increasing the frequency and focus of their cleaning procedures to ensure high touch areas are sanitized regularly and thoroughly.
9 Bay Street, Parry Sound
Hop on the Islander to experience the beauty for yourself with tours to remote islands for lunch and to Huckleberry Island where you can explore the shoreline and take a swim from a secluded beach. Pick from two regular tours on the Islander, one to Henry’s World Famous Fish Restaurant on Frying Pan Island and another to Huckleberry Island where the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve will lead a guided eco-tour along the shoreline. Passengers will be onshore for roughly one hour on both tours.
185 Cherokee Lane, Gravenhurst
Welcome aboard the 130-year-old historic steamship R.M.S. Segwun and the modern replica steamship Wenonah II – the only fleet of its kind in Canada. Built in 1887, Segwun is North America’s oldest operating steamship and an Ontario tourism icon.
The Muskoka Steamships have several safety measures currently in place, including temperature checks during check-in, mandatory face masks, reduced capacity, and frequent cleaning of the ship.
