Boat Tours

We provide guided passenger boat tours aboard comfortable pontoon boats in two locations: the sheltered waters of Lake Huron and the Sauble River.

Oliphant Departures

JUST 13 KM NORTH OF SAUBLE BEACH AND 13 KM WEST OF WIARTON

The area we navigate is an archipelago of 70+ islands known locally as “The Fishing Islands” of Lake Huron. Learn about the history, geography and incredibly beautiful natural environment in this part of South Bruce Peninsula, just 13 km west of Wiarton and 13 km north of Sauble Beach. 

Oliphant tours must pre-booked online or by phone. For same-day availability, please call 519-372-6309.

Sauble River Departures

IN SAUBLE BEACH

We travel from the mouth of the beautiful Sauble River to the Sauble Falls, in Sauble Beach, Ontario. Learn about the indigenous people, lumber barons and pleasure-seekers of our past who came here to fish, profit, and enjoy the sandy shores of what would become a full-season lakeside town and premier Ontario vacation destination.

Reservations for Sauble River Tours can be made online, by phone, and by purchasing tickets at the ticket booth on the Sauble River, Public Boat Launch site. However, availability is limited, so we strongly advise booking ahead online or by phone.

Enjoy a guided boat tour past islands once rich in the history of indigenous people and early white mariners, in this stunning part of South Bruce Peninsula. Departs from Oliphant. 
Explore the course of the Sauble River from the mouth to the Sauble Falls. Revisit a time when the Sauble River and falls, were a hub of activity in this now popular vacation destination.
