Overview

The "Muskoka Experience" always includes a cruise on the big 3 Muskoka Lakes, with their rugged & beautiful Canadian Shield vistas & gorgeous cottages. Enjoy live commentary including history & local lore. Depart Port Carling 7 days/wk late June-Oct. Sunset, dinner & private/bridal cruises too! Owned & operated by Captain Randy Potts, who has been a licensed captain for over 30 years, Sunset Cruises is an alternative to the larger ships, and can show you Muskoka scenery accessible only by our smaller ships. We go where the large boats don't. The Peerless II made its living for over 50 years as a gasoline and home heating oil delivery boat. We restored it so visitors and locals alike could see and experience first hand the historic supply boat era on the lakes.

I thoroughly enjoyed my cruise with sunset cruises. We chose Sunset as their boat was smaller than some of the others. The captain and staff were friendly and knowledgeable, the boat not crowded. Fantastic scenery.

Call the company directly. We were up in the area two weeks before Thanksgiving and were told by staff at our resort that due to the weather many companies had extended their season until the weekend after Thanksgiving.
