Fodor's Review

In warm weather, cruises tour the Muskoka lakes on historic and reproduction vessels. Excursions range from one to eight hours and include lunch and dinner cruises, sightseeing cruises, and themed trips, like the murder-mystery cruise and, for kids, a cruise with a magic show, a visit to a wildlife park, or pirate dress-up. The restored 128-foot-long, 99-passenger RMS Segwun (the initials stand for Royal Mail Ship) is North America's oldest operating steamship,

built in 1887, and is the sole survivor of a fleet that provided transportation through the Muskoka Lakes. The 200-passenger Wenonah II is a 1907-inspired vessel with modern technology. Reservations are required. Learn about steamboat history and technology in the Muskoka Boat and Heritage Centre with a rotating collection of historic boats that have included a 1924 propeller boat, a 30-foot 1894 steamboat, and gleaming wooden speedboats.
