I have always heard of the 30,000 islands in Georgian Bay and how beautiful they are, but I never really understood how magnificent they are until I took the Island Queen! Excellent tour to take with the family!

It was very interesting and scenic. A must do when you're in Parry Sound. Great pizzas and beer adds to the enjoyment of the trip. Lots of room to move around unlike the Agawa train trip. Make sure your camera is fully charged.

This was an amazing cruise through the islands. Well worth the money. Drinks and simple snacks are available on board but bringing a lunch would be a great idea. I would do the whole trip again.
