2022 Schedule

Dear past guests and avid readers:

Our tour schedule for 2022 is now available on our website.

We have kept our very popular classic excursions and have made room for new experiences, on-water in 2022.

***Book before OCTOBER 15TH and your excursion is at this year’s prices.****

It is our continued pleasure to offer excursions on-water within the inner bay of Long Point.


A message from our captain

Due to excessive weeds and low water at our approach to Port Rowan harbour dock and to preserve our equipment from damage, as of Wednesday this week we will be departing and returning from our alternate location for all tours going forward.

Our secondary location is located at Collins Harbour Resort, 5 minutes drive east of Port Rowan on the Front Road.

The address is
274 Front Rd
St. Williams Ontario
N0E 1P0

To ensure everyone booked gets this update, we are including a Google maps location on this email.

When you pull in at the sign on Front Road, continue down the driveway, past the main house and garage to the boat ramp. Parking is at the water and is at no charge.
There are washroom facilities present as well.

Thank you for your understanding in change of location due to low water and marine growth at Port Rowan Harbour.

If you have any concerns please call me directly at 519 718 9608.

Owner/ Captain

Anyone that needs assistance getting on or off the boat will still be picked up and dropped off at Port Rowan harbour.

We Made The Provincial Info Sheet

While we are impressed that our part of tourism made the COVID 19 EXAMPLES we are disappointed the example is in the second stage.

Our new earliest start time will be July 5th (ish) 2021. We hope the Premier will see the wisdom of operators safety with guests and hopefully open sooner.

(But… it was cool to be mentioned)

Sometimes a boat just speaks to you…

This story begins just before the pandemic, which was placed on hold when I returned to full time work in healthcare.  This 1965, Chris craft was up for sale, looking for a new home after the owner experienced some serious medical conditions making the boat more than he could handle.

The Counter offer.

“How about a trade?”
We have a restored 1961 Courtney Craft at 18′ with a trailer which we restored the previous season.  As it turns out it was EXACTLY what the owner wanted and we made the deal.

He is eager to complete the trade, we are eager to get this new boat home and get her ready for  BUSY 2021 season. 

Your DONATION is greatly appreciated, thank you for your support!
