Piloted by certified captains and crews, Scugog Island Cruises ferry travellers along the scenic sights of Lake Scugog and its preeminent 7-mile island. Passengers on sightseeing tours drift for two hours aboard a double-decker steamboat while a trusty guide waxes lively on the details of the watery haven's history and how to best train seagulls to do one’s bidding. During one of the cruise’s frequent departures, gaze at the splendour of wildlife nesting in Birdseye Park, or watch for the eerie splashes of Lake Scugog's salient sea monster. Passengers also glean the ghastly lore behind the Ghost Road mystery that haunts the island with frightful sights and eerie aromas of theatre popcorn. Though not included in this offer, refreshments are sold on-board for a fee.
Scugog Island Cruises
Each voyage the MV Woodman takes with Scugog Island Cruises pays tribute to the rich maritime history of the area. The double-decker vessel carries the moniker of an 1850s-era steamship that cruised Lake Scugog for more than 70 years, and the crew recounts tales from bygone days of glamorous lake parties and the time that carp ran for mayor during each sightseeing excursion. Whether they are steering up to 100 passengers for a wedding, birthday shindig, or themed dinner-dance cruise, the trained personnel aim to dip each experience in the colours of the area's rich history.
