This tour will board from the main docks of Little Current at 12:45pm. After an on-board welcome and safety briefing by our crew, we will depart at approximately 1:00pm.
This 42-mile round-trip tour is an experience you won’t soon forget. Views of the Strawberry Island Lighthouse and a glimpse through the water of a sunken ship are just a few of the sights we will come across while making our way to the mouth of Baie Fine. As we begin to enter into the fjord, we will pass the long-standing and luxurious Okeechobee Lodge. Le Petit OisEau will sail down the narrow 10-mile passage, with steep rocky white quartz mountains covered in windswept pines on either side. This is a dramatic and picture-perfect area, you will want to be sure to have your camera in hand.
Once we arrive at the anchorage known as “The Pool”, you will have two hours to enjoy the area. Hike up the well-marked trail to Lake Topaz. You may even recognize the area as it was painted by the Group of Seven's Arthur Lismer. You will know why he was inspired to paint at Lake Topaz after you get to the top.
We will depart back at 4:00pm and arrive on the main docks of Little Current at 5:00pm.
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.
