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 36-mile round-trip will begin by heading westward out of Little Current passing by Picnic Island and Narrow Island and then heading north up the Waubuno Channel. As we cruise along, we will provide you with some history and interesting facts about the area. Pressing on, you will begin to see these beautiful island formations of granite rock smoothly rising out of the water, some smaller and some grand. Soon, in every direction you look, you will see these picture-perfect smooth rocky shorelines with Ontario's renowned windswept pines elegantly swaying in the breeze. The South Benjamin Island is our destination of choice for you to explore. We arrive here at approximately 2:00pm, anyone who chooses can disembark to hike some of the area, take a dip in the lake or just sit on these smooth rocks and soak in the peaceful scenery.
We will head back around 4:00pm taking in more scenery the area has to offer and return back to 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.
