“The three-level, 104-foot Lady Muskoka has been meandering down the Muskoka River and into Lake Muskoka, granting up to 300 passengers at a time an intimate look at the wildlife, the nearby cottages, and Millionaire's Row. And what's more: for all 2 hours and 45 minutes of each tour, passengers can sip their drink of choice and snack on everything from hotdogs and pizza to our famous on-board lunch.”

“The Wharf offers great dining, shopping, history and heritage and is home to many of Gravenhurst's signature community events. The Wharf features a beautiful boardwalk trail along Lake Muskoka, docking for boats and pontoon aircraft, shops and plenty of parking! Be sure to check out the Farmer's Market from May to October, watch the sun glint off the wooden boats of our bygone times and buy unique Art and Crafts at the Dockside Festival of the Arts. Cruise on Canada's oldest operating steamship, the RMS Segwun, and visit the Muskoka Steamship and Discovery Centre.”
