Peter and Donna Stewart Owners and Guides

Peter and Donna and their families, have a long history on the Bruce Peninsula. The descendants of lumbering pioneers, their roots run deep. They and their families tell tales that include the the land of the peninsula and their days spent enjoying the waters of Lake Huron, Georgian Bay and the Sauble River. Ask them sometime about their first few dates!

The Stewarts spent much of their youth and adult lives with their children enjoying the water from the family cottage and home in Oliphant, ON. Many years of experience in powerboats, sailing vessels and small craft, led Peter to began running tours of The Fishing Islands of Lake Huron in 2005. He thoroughly enjoyed sharing this beautiful place and our history, and could imagine nowhere else he would rather be in his retirement than on the water.

Peter and Donna love sharing stories of the past and fostering an appreciation for our local environment. They love being on the water, and helping others to safely and enjoyably experience it, too.

Todd Fetter Guide

Todd’s family has lived on the Bruce Peninsula near the shores of Lake Huron in Oliphant, ON, just 13 km north of Sauble Beach since he was a child. As a youth, Todd spent his summers on the waters of Lake Huron, snorkelling, boating and developing a fascination for our local history. His love for sharing stories and enjoying the outdoors led to an international career in the tourism industry. While guiding for Backroads, Todd guided active tours in numerous countries, including managing water-based activities on Canada’s east coast. When not guiding, Todd has continued to return to the Bruce to visit family, enjoy the water and pursue his love for great lakes surfing.

We are pleased that Todd has returned to his roots on the Bruce, to share his guiding experience, local knowledge and love of a good yarn with our guests!

Michael McMillan Guide

Mike and his family have visited and lived in the Red Bay area of the Lake Huron shoreline, for years. As a teenager, Mike plied our local waters fishing, boating and sailing and worked at a local resort we pass by on our tours. Ask him how the girls at Evergreen Resort enjoyed his Buddy Holly glasses and guitar strumming skills, many years ago! Mike’s years of experience on local waters, knowledge of area and wildlife here, and his great story-telling abilities makes him a very enjoyable and capable guide. You will be safety transported around the islands, while “Magic Mike” shares his knowledge of our area.
