The Deal

  • C$10 for an S.S. Keewatin two-part boat walking tour (up to a C$20 value)

The two-hour, two-part tour includes exploration of both the upper deck and engine room. Guests can also view other rooms, including the dining room, crew quarters, and ladies' smoking lounge. Below deck sit the grain holds, coal bunkers, and a working 3,200 horsepower quadruple expansion steam engine, similar to what powered the Titanic. Children under 12 are free with adult admission.

S.S. Keewatin

Beginning its life in 1907, The S.S. Keewatin traveled the Great Lakes from the bottom of Georgian Bay to the tip of Lake Superior. Along with a fleet of four other ships, the Keewatin transported passengers on the 2.5-day trip for 58 seasons before being retired and considering a nice summer home in Florida. Though modern in one sense—it was one of the first vessels to carry radar on the lakes—the Keewatin was brought down by its wood cabin construction and inability to keep up with the speed of more contemporary planes and trains.

Today, the ship survives in its permanent spot at Port McNicoll. Tours explore the passengers and crew's staterooms along with the more glamorous ladies' smoking lounge and a dining room of the Edwardian period. Below deck lies the Titanic-era 3,200 horsepower quadruple expansion steam engine that powered the great ship as well as its demure disco.
