We were not expecting much on this cruise, but we were pleasantly surprised. Right away we grabbed front row seats and enjoyed the humour of the captain throughout the cruise. Very scenic and informative cruise. Nice staff- very cordial. Drinks on board.

We boarded the boat at 9:10 and had a fantastic continental breakfast that was all you can eat, a ton of different offerings, with tea, coffee, fruit juices all included. The boat sailed at 9:30 across Lake Couchiching to the Trent Severn Waterway, through Lock 42 and past a couple of rail and road swing bridges all the way to... More

This is a 2 hour boar cruise that goes around a large lake and stays close to the shore line so that you can see that large magnificent homes owned by millionaires. While the cruise is slow and on very calm water there is nothing spectacular, about the lake. The captain is very knowledgable about the area and all of... More

The boat trips in September start at 2:15 p.m. They last 2 1/2 or 1 1/2 hours. Very pleasant, calm, and nice. The captain shares his knowledge and experience in a very good way. Just take a trip and enjoy!

Our cruise was part of the Sunshine Getaway. We have taken many a cruise in Ontario Cottage Country and this one was OK. The weather that day was very hot and it was nice to be on board a boat to cool down. The cruise was not too long, but enjoyable. Ours was the 2nd cruise of the day. The... More

My husband and I were married on board the island princess this June. There were some communications issues but our wedding day turned out amazing! The staff were friendly to myself and all my guests! The only downfall was that I could not bring drinks on board for my guests.. not even bottles of water on a hot summer day.... More

We took a Sunday afternoon sightseeing cruise. It was awesome! The beauty of the lakes are unsurpassed. Captain Tom was knowledgeable and funny - we really enjoyed his commentary. The crew members were friendly and attentive. It was a wonderful way to spend 2 1/2 hours on a Sunday afternoon. Thanks Captain Tom and crew!
