With the changing of seasons comes a changing of unique beauty! The sail is rich in scenery with rugged shorelines and unique rock formations. To add to this beauty, the brilliant fall colors will leave you gazing this sail away! The world famous Baie Fine Fjord is located 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 tour will take you part way down the fjord and then return to the main docks of Little Current at approximately 3:00pm. Lunch will be served during the tour. Soda, juices, milk and alcoholic beverages are available at an additional charge. No outside beverages permitted. Credit cards and cash are accepted forms of payment. Sorry, no debit.
