The Island Queen was custom designed for Georgian Bay.

The Island Queen is a modern 132’ cruise ship, specially designed with easy maneuverability and a shallow draft, allowing our captain’s to meander into remote waterways and up-close to the natural beauty of the islands. The ship’s twin CAT diesel engines, twin five-bladed bronze propellers and special hull shape are designed to provide an extremely quiet, smooth and stable cruising experience.


Passenger comfort and accessibility are keys to a great experience.

The Island Queen is designed to maximize comfort and viewing quality. The ship features comfortable seating and large viewing windows, spacious outside observation decks, wheelchair accessible washrooms, a snack bar, a full commentary and heat for cooler spring and fall days. Passengers can move about freely during the duration of our cruises.


Safety is always at the forefront of what we do.

The Island Queen is inspected and certified annually by Transport Canada. As an industry leader, the Island Queen Cruise is committed to outstanding safety compliance. From our very beginnings to this day, we operate above and beyond Transport Canada crewing and safety regulations.  Please note that the 30,000 Island Cruise Lines Inc. reserves the right, without liability and without notice, to cancel, delay, shorten or change the routing of any of its cruises whenever, in its judgement, circumstances warrant.  Minimum passenger requirements apply on all cruises.
