All aboard the Island Queen for a relaxing cruise through Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands, the largest concentration of freshwater islands in the world! Passengers can chose between two cruises, our Original Two-Hour Morning Cruise, offered daily in July and August, or our Flagship Three-Hour Afternoon Cruise, offered daily from June 1 to Thanksgiving Monday each season. Our two-hour morning cruise follows a meandering route past charming summer retreats that draw so many generations of families back to the inner islands of Georgian Bay. The windswept islands that give shape to the narrow channels and shallow waterways that the Island Queen cruises through on this tour are what many locals consider to be some of the most picturesque on the Bay.
Our three-hour afternoon tour follows in the wake of early explorers as the captain’s bring the ship surprisingly up-close to the rugged shoreline of Parry Island and the Bay’s remote outer islands. Passengers enjoy a captain’s eye view of these outer islands 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 Island Queen is wheelchair accessible and fully equipped with comfortable seating, outside observation decks, large viewing windows, a snack bar and a full narration. Ice cream, a gift shop and free parking at dockside.
