Departing from the docks of Killarney Mountain Lodge at 12:00pm, you will be whisked away by Le Petit OisEau and taken on a scenic journey to the worlds largest fresh water island in the world - Manitoulin Island.
This tour is an 18-mile long scenic boat ride that takes in some of the North Channel’s most beautiful sights. Along with the rugged beauty, you will see and hear about some of the rich history belonging to this area. You will be treated to an up-close view of Manitoulin Island's iconic swing bridge as we enter into the port of Little Current.
Once in Little Current, you will have two hours to explore the town. Grab an ice cream and walk the dock, check out some of the quaint local shops on Water Street, grab some food at the Anchor Inn or even talk a walk up to Manitoulin Brewing Co.
Departure from Little Current will be at 3:00pm and you will be brought right back to the docks of Killarney Mountain Lodge at approximately 4:00pm.
Traveling on Le Petit OisEau:
Unlike our large 100 passenger tour vessel The Grand Heron, Le Petit OisEau is a much different experience and may not be suitable for everyone. Powered by twin 250hp engines, this vessel travels at a high rate of speed which produces an apparent wind effect. While there is some shielding from the bow shape, customers will feel a rush of wind while traveling on this vessel. There is limited seating inside the cabin and therefore you may be seated outside. All seats aboard are triple padded and very comfortable. While our captain will do everything possible to provide a smooth a ride, there may be times when the vessel encounters higher sea conditions or crosses the wake of other boats. There may be considerable movement of the vessel in waves. Splashing from waves or rainwater is also a possibility at times. This vessel is fast and lots of fun to travel on but please check weather forecasts on the day of your tour and be prepared for all possible weather conditions. That could mean packing a windbreaker or rain jacket as well as protective eyewear such as sunglasses. This vessel may not be appropriate for people with injuries, disabilities or depleted agility. Because of the above, the management and crew may from time to time have the need to cancel tours on board this vessel should the weather prohibit the vessel from being safe or comfortable to operate and we thank you for your understanding should cancellations ever been deemed necessary. Full refunds will be issued if a tour is cancelled by management.
