Georgian Bay’s famous island landscape offers adventure at every turn! Experience it for yourself with tours to remote islands for lunch and to Huckleberry Island where you can explore the shoreline and take a swim from a secluded beach!
All aboard the 40-passenger Islander for a short boat ride to picturesque Huckleberry Island, where passengers can get off the ship, stroll over the rocks and explore the shoreline! A Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve naturalist will join each trip to lead a guided hike for roughly 25-30 minutes. There is also an absolutely beautiful secluded and shallow beach area so bring your swimsuit for a quick dip! Passengers will be on shore for a little over 1 hour before heading back to Parry Sound. Huckleberry Island has uneven terrain so proper footwear is required. This terrain is not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs. The Islander will go through the “Hole in the Wall” on this trip so get your cameras ready!
“Huckleberry Island is so beautiful. It’s unbelievable really. Smooth rock, windswept pines, lapping water, secluded beaches and the smell of junipers. Wow.”

Enjoy a 1-hour boat ride through the picturesque islands of the South Channel and the Sans Souci area of Georgian Bay to historic Wreck Island! Wreck Island is believed to be the final resting place of the Waubuno, a 120′ sidewheel steamer, which sank in a November 1879 snow storm. The island is also in the heart of the Massasauga Provincial Park and one of the last of the “outer islands” before boaters and campers reach the open waters of Georgian Bay! After the trip down, the crew of the Islander will dock the vessel in a sheltered cove and passengers will disembark and enjoy roughly 90 minutes on shore. After a quick washroom break, passengers can begin the Wreck Island Trail, a 1.5 km walking trail of moderate difficulty that follows the shoreline of the western tip of the island. The trail includes some of the most spectacular scenery in the Park and contains phenomenal geological history. The trail is quite rugged in places with uneven shelf-rock so proper footwear with closed toes is required (running shoes, hiking shoes or hiking boots). The trail requires good balance and agility and is not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs. After the hike, passengers will board the Islander again for the trip back to Parry Sound. Don’t forget to bring some water and snacks!
“The Wreck Island Trail is awesome. The boat ride down is quite scenic and the trail itself is very picturesque.”
Dates are yet to be determined.

Jump on board the 40-passenger Islander as the crew meander the vessel through the islands of the South Channel to the famous Henry’s Fish Restaurant on Frying Pan Island! The 60 minute boat ride down the South Channel to the open water and panoramic views of the Sans Souci area is a local favourite. Passengers will enjoy roughly an hour on shore and of course, a delicious Henry’s fish and chips lunch among the 30,000 Islands, truly a one-of-a-kind Georgian Bay experience. Henry’s is a popular destination for locals, cottage owners and yachts cruising the bay through the summer months and we’re extremely excited to be able to share it with you! After lunch, take in the charming beauty of Sans Souci and board the Islander again for the 60 minute ferry ride back to Parry Sound. Price of a ticket does not include lunch.
“Thank you for an awesome time on our cruise to Henry’s. Your people and the boat are exceptional. We hope to do this again soon. Thanks again!”
