Located just steps from 40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast is Canada's largest sightseeing cruise boat. The Island Queen seats 550 passengers, and is fully wheelchair accessible. It is 132' long, 30' wide with a draft of only 6'. This allows the boat to cruise very closely to the shore, and offers passengers the opportunity for incredible views and picture-taking opportunities.
Leaving from the Parry Sound Town Dock daily, the morning cruise is two hours long and follows a route that takes passengers through very scenic inner islands and past some beautiful summer retreats. The afternoon cruise is three hours long and is the one I recommend the most to guests.
It takes passengers out to see the outer islands, which gives you some idea of the vastness of the 30,000 islands and Georgian Bay.
It doesn't matter what time of year you plan on taking the boat - it is always best to wear layers of clothing so you can add layers if you are cool or take layers off if you are warm. Always bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. (The ship does have heat for those chilly days.)
Did you know 40 Bay Street Bed & Breakfast acts as a Bridal Party Headquarters for a number of weddings each year? We take the stress of getting ready for the big day off the bride and her family's shoulders! We pamper everyone by organizing everything around the wedding schedule, including special breakfasts with the wedding party, a buffet lunch and a place for everyone to have their hair and make-up done, flowers delivered, photographs taken, etc.
Here's what one bride had to say about her experience:
"Thank you for your amazing hospitality during my recent stay at 40 Bay Street for my wedding. I am so happy we found you!! 40 Bay Street was the perfect start and end to a perfect day! My wedding party woke up to a beautiful breakfast after a relaxing and much needed sleep. What a perfect place to have my hairdresser and make-up artist feel at home. We had a blast! We were then greeted by my flower girls and florist who made it just in time for the scrumptious lunch (this really helped to sustain our energy throughout the day). Thank you for watching over the little ones while we all got dressed and thank you for making my day less stressful. I felt like I was at home which was very important to me.
Susan, you are a bride's dream come true. You had every detail perfect, your company and chats were really comforting, your follow-ups the weeks prior were a breath of fresh air (thank you for your updates on the weather:). I would highly recommend staying at 40 Bay Street to any bride. It is the perfect home base that is much needed on your wedding day!!
Many, many thanks Susan and we will speak to you soon, Natasha and Aidan"
