At their peak, the Lacloche mountain range once stood 11 kilometers tall making them the tallest mountain range in the world. The Lacloche range has since endured billions of years of erosion and the mountains are now smooth quartzite. These ridges make up some of the tallest mountains in Ontario.  Scattered throughout the mountains are boulders which were used as “warning bells” by the local natives when struck. For this reason the range was coined “Bell Mountains”, in French – “Lacloche” by the French Voyageurs.

Event Begins: 5:00pm

Join Us on our Annual ‘Cruise for a Cause’ fundraising dinner with Manitoulin Country Fest! bringing you an exclusive, up close performance by one of Country’s hottest bands “The Reklaws”

The Reklaws

Raised in rural Ontario, The Reklaws are comprised of the brother-sister duo Jenna and Stuart Walker. The Reklaws (Walker backwards) began to turn heads in 2012 when they were awarded the CCMA Discovery Artist title. Since then, they have shared the stage with some of country’s best including Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Thomas Rhett and more. The pair have spent long hours in Nashville crafting their songs and their efforts have paid off as they came back with an infectious sound, with an authentic mix of pop and country and a “soundtrack-to-your-summer” vibe. The Reklaws took the summer of 2017 by storm with their major label debut with Universal Music Canada and release of their debut single “Hometown Kids” which quickly charted at #15. As a follow up, their chart-rattling lead single and title track from their EP, “Long Live The Night”, has been the most streamed song in all of Canadian country music released this year, hit top five on Canadian Country charts, hit gold certification and was named as the official theme song for CFL’s Thursday Night Football on TSN. The duo recently took the award for SiriusXM Rising Star at the 2018 CCMA awards and performed “Long Live The Night” live in the national broadcast. Stay tuned for much more to come as the Reklaws continue solidify themselves as the next superstars in country music in Canada.

Ticket Prices: Adult:$119; Child:$69

Boarding in Little Current at 9:30am, this 40 mile, 6 hour (approx.) tour departs the dock at 9:50am sharp. The sail is rich with rugged shores that will leave you gazing the day away! The world famous Baie Fine Fjord is inside the seclusion of Killarney Provincial Park, it is a must see!

The Lacloche range that forms each side of this part of the ships passage are approx 3.5 billion year quartzite rock, and are embedded with 1.5 billion year old pink granite. At their peak, the Lacloche mountain range once stood 11 kilometers tall making them the tallest mountain range in the world. The Lacloche range has since endured billions of years of erosion and the mountains are now smooth quartzite. These ridges make up some of the tallest mountains in Ontario.  Scattered throughout the mountains are boulders which were used as “warning bells” by the local natives when struck. For this reason the range was coined “Bell Mountains”, in French – “Lacloche” by the French Voyageurs.

The ship will make its way toward the end of this waterway and drop anchor for approx 2 hours. For those wishing to go ashore, a shore hike will be available, or take this opportunity to go for a dip in the water! We will then return along the same picturesque route to Little Current

Buffet lunch is included. Food items such as sandwiches, vegetable/cheese/fruit platters, salads, treats and drinking water will be served.
