    Welcome to our 3 Hour afternoon cruise aboard the 550 passenger Island Queen cruise ship cruising Georgian Bay's 30,000 Islands. With a surprisingly up-close view of the rugged shoreline of Parry Island and Georgian Bay’s remote outer islands, passengers enjoy a captain’s eye view as the ship meanders past granite shoals into narrow channels within an eco-system so unique that it has earned World Biosphere Reserve status from the United Nations. The unique fall colour contrasts strikingly amidst the eastern white pine and cedar growing on the Precambrian rocks and granite cliffs along the shoreline.

    ************* IMPORTANT NOTIFICATIONS *************

     Our trips are for all ages

    Our tours are perfectly designed for all ages. However, they are often fast-paced, and sometimes tiring, packed with adventure, new experiences and feel-good moments. Therefore, we ask that anyone wanting to travel with us carefully consider whether any PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS prevent you from fully enjoying our trips.

    Traveling with children: Due to the fast-paced nature of our group tours, all children require adult supervision. Some of our more active excursions may not be suitable for children under the age of 8.

    Embrace the nature of Group Travel

    To get the most out of your tour, pack a positive attitude and an open mind. These are most certainly valuable when travelling in a group. Despite the very best intentions and planning, things can and do go wrong and occasionally we encounter problems beyond our control, such as delayed public transport and adverse weather conditions. In such situations we ask for your patience and we will endeavor to keep as close to our scheduled itinerary as possible.
