I can not recommend the dinner cruise experience highly enough. The crew are friendly and professional, the food is exquisite, and the cruise itself is phenomenal. I am a veteran of the Island Queen (also wonderful), though the intimacy of this smaller vessel is a pleasure all its own. You want to take this three hour (well, 2.5) tour.

Booked the Wednesday evening dinner cruise. Unfortunately, the boat's caterer had not delivered on his promise to provide the food. So, there was no dinner. However, instead of cancelling the cruise the staff provided us with free munchies and we took one of the most enjoyable cruises I have ever had on Georgian Bay. It was stormy weather. The wind blew, the rain came down hard and the waves developed white caps and large swells. The Chippewa, in it's previous life a "Maid of the Mist" boat took it all without any problem and gave us a fantastic ride. Just before we were to turn back the clouds behind us parted and we were treated to a full , intense rainbow right in front of us. What a thrill. We got a refund for the meal portion of the trip before we even returned to the dock. Thank you Chippwea crew for a real serendipididous experience.

We had a fabulous outing…very intimate.. Staff waited on us..We had been on the larger boat last year…this was so much more comfortable and enjoyable…the only thing missing was commentary…but we engaged in conversation with other guests and had a great cruise.

my husband had injured his knee earlier in the week and I have hip issues. Cruising among the islands for 3 hours was the perfect activity for us since walking the trails was too much at this time, though we would have loved to.

We gave the new owners another shot after last year. (Last year a group of 14 didn’t get a call that there wasn’t staff. So we had no where to go and no restaurant could take our group due to NO NOTICE)
This year we all decided to give them a second chance. Covid was hard so let’s see what they have to offer this summer.
Well this summers sunset dinner cruise provided a jam packed boat, to the point another table couldn’t even move to get to the bathrooms. The front of the boat that was to be enjoyed after dinner is now crammed with tables and therefore no pictures with your group.
NO SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS, not one word from the captain saying we have left the dock nor does he tell you where you are.

Serving staff was beyond rude, drinks were warm, our bills were all screwed up and attitude to fix them, the food, the food was the most disgusting thing. Never in my life have I had to use my napkin to spit food out of my mouth. But there’s a first for everything. We weren’t aloud to have a decent portion of the food offerings either. We got told that there’s other tables. So not enough food provided. But once you got it you we disgusted with it anyway. Not one person from the back of the boat clear there plate.

Telling the captain about the food being disappointing resulted in a comment of “not my problem. I just operate the boat”.

This business will survive on unknowing tourists looking for something to do. But I can tell you no locals will be supporting this business after the past service and experience.

THE PREVIOUS OWNERS WERE THE ONES with THE GREAT REVIEWS AND SERVICE.

We booked the sunset cruise online and they called at 12:50 to say they couldn’t do the sunset because it was just our 4 and said we can come to 1 o’clock. 10 minutes to make it there? Beware call before you book!

I appoligize for the chance in schedule. The sunset crusie on Thursday July 14th did not operate due to not being at the minimum number of Guests. The July 14th afternoon cruise did operate at 1pm so sorry you missed that crusie. The group was rebooked for the Saturday evening crusie and provided with two complimentary beers. We strive to provide a great customer service, and look forward to offering a amazing crusing experience.

We highly recommend this beautiful scenic sunset & dinner boat cruise. The food was delicious and the staff were all very friendly. It was a very enjoyable time, well worth the drive down from Byng Inlet.⛴ to celebrate our sons birthday they took good care to make this day special.

Don't use this tour company. The tour is booked online and you pay for it and you think it is scheduled -then when you get to the destination they decide if they have enough people to do the boat trip or not! They then tell you to come back the next day and still there isn't enough people. Totally a waste of vacation time when you can be enjoying this beautiful town.
