The Fall Colours cruise is so popular that very little advertising is needed to fill this boat cruise. And with good reason. At the end of each sailing season, the Chi Cheemaun ferry boat must move from Tobermory to Owen Sound where it docks for the winter. For the past few years, tickets have been sold for this "positioning cruise" with great success. And with good reason. Your ticket includes bus transportation from Owen Sound to Tobermory, a walk-on ticket for the 5 hour trip from Tobermory back to Owen Sound and, if you pre-purchase it (optional), a hot lunch in the cafeteria. The cruise down the east side of the Bruce Peninsula is very scenic and because the waters are so deep, the boat can get very close to shore along the National Park shoreline. Many of the points of interest are announced to passengers so you can get photos of them. There is live entertainment in the lounge and the food is excellent. Tickets are numbered and passengers are called to lunch by ticket number so there is no mad dash for a seat in the dining room. For those who have taken the boat to Manitoulin Island, imagine 5 glorious hours watching amazing scenery go by, an exceptional hot lunch (it has been cold and rainy the last 2 years), live entertainers and the tugboats at Owen Sound and the pedestrians all waving and honking to welcome the boat "home" for the winter. The boat also does a spring positioning cruise to get back to Tobermory for the summer sailing season (plus bus transportation back to your car). If you want a ticket on the spring boat, you may want to call now (October) to reserve. For the fall boat, call and reserve no later than August to ensure you get a ticket. Will I be on the boat next year? You bet - probably both trips. Join me. You will love it.
