With hundreds of lakes and rivers across Muskoka, boats are the perfect way to explore. Early boat cruises involved travel north from the cities by railway and steamship. Many small communities across our region sprouted up as destinations for visitors arriving by steamship. However, as cars became more popular, these large ships gave way to the era of the pleasure boat. As a result, factories sprung up across Muskoka to build and service boats of all types. Today you can still enjoy a boat cruise aboard restored classics or modern ships.
See the incredible beauty that Muskoka has to offer from a unique vantage point – our waterways. Feel the wind in your hair and the spray from the bow as you follow historical routes. Hear the stories of the founding of our communities from local experts. From sightseeing cruises, lunch and dinner cruises, and everything in between, hop aboard and experience what a Boat Cruise in Muskoka has to offer!
