Cruising Through Summer

Few sights are as synonymous with Muskoka as the beautiful steamships in Gravenhurst at the Muskoka Wharf. And as of August 1st, the Wennonah II – one half of the beloved Muskoka Steamships, the other, named the Segwun – resumed public cruises on the breathtaking blue waters of Lake Muskoka.

For those unfamiliar, this unique Muskoka experience offers passengers the opportunity to see Lake Muskoka in a totally new way. The cruises help showcase just how beautiful Muskoka is and just how special it is to visit or call home. To celebrate the Steamships’ return to sailing this summer, here are 3 tips to make sure you get the most out your visit to the Wharf and a cruise aboard the majestic Steamships.

#1 – Make It Comfy: Bring Us With You

We love cruises and you will too when you’re in your cottage comfy Muskoka Bear Wear! Sometimes the wind on the water can be cool, so we recommend bringing along a Ladies Camp Hoody or Men’s Quarter-Zip. You will enjoy the scenic rocks, trees and wildlife from the deck of the Wennonah II as she effortlessly floats across the water. < relaxing sigh >

#2 – Great Selfie Locations at the Wharf

There are several great spots for selfies worth checking out while you’re at the Wharf. The most obvious one is directly where the beautiful ships are docked as seen above. Another is at the Gazebo located along the boardwalk at the Wharf. And if you want to get a different angle entirely, take a 2-minute drive to the Lions Lookout Park for a great view of the Steamships – from the other side!
