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.

Thanks for the review. Sorry you didn't fully enjoy your trip. We do tell people to book early because we do sometimes sell out and its often unpredictable and heavily influenced by the weather.

I didn't count all thirty thousand islands, but even if they were a few short, I was very happy we took this cruise. The boat is a nice, human size. The staff, from the cashier to the people at boarding to the cafeteria staff were...More

The 30,000 Island Queen Cruise is an excellent way to see the majestic scenery in and around Georgian Bay. It's also a great way to hear the stories about the neighboring First Nation community of Wasauksing. A good excursion for families and friends.

We took the three hour afternoon cruise on a beautiful warm summer day through the 30,000 islands of Georgian Bay. The captain very skillfully navigated through some very narrow channels and shallow waters. It was a wonderful mix of beautiful scenery and history narrative.

We had a blast this afternoon aboard the Island Queen Cruise! Weather was fantastic, snacks/food on the boat were tasty and a bonus- they served beer! Lovely views and very friendly staff! Would highly recommend for a nice afternoon on the water!
