Oliphant Departures

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. 

Sauble River Departures

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.
