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 choose 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. On both tours, passengers enjoy a captain’s eye view of the islands as the ship meanders past granite shoals into narrow channels within an ecosystem so unique that it has earned World Biosphere Reserve status from the United Nations.

New in 2018 is our 40-passenger Islander! Passengers on the Islander have two tours to choose from, a lunch tour down the South Channel to Henry’s World Famous Fish Restaurant on Frying Pan Island and an ecotour out to Huckleberry Island where the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve will lead a guided stroll along the shores of the Bay.

Islander Adventure Tour 

Jump on board the 40-passenger Islander as the crew meander through the islands in the South Channel to Henry’s Fish Restaurant on Frying Pan Island. The boat ride through the Sans Souci area of the bay is a local favourite and a fish and chips lunch among the 30,000 Islands of is a one-of-a-kind Georgian Bay experience. Passengers will be on shore for roughly 1 hour for lunch. Price of ticket does not include lunch.
