As winter approaches, we are already planning and preparing for our 2018 season which commences on May 13. At the present time, there is a 2% discount for any 2018 cruise booked with deposit received prior to December 11, 2017. Our office will be closed for the holidays from December 16 to January 8, 2018 but phone messages that are left will be attended to.
The US/CDN exchange rate continues to be very favourable for our friends from the United States. With the $US exchange rate on November 20, 2017, the current cost of our 2018 cruises including tax is $US 1,725. (subject to change according to the exchange rate when your final balance is paid).
You may view our 2018 cruise schedule by clicking Cruise Dates on the menu at the top of this page. For specific information and rates on our Rideau, Quinte or Kawartha cruises, please click CRUISES on the menu above then select one of the three cruise routes. All cruises in any given year are the same price.
We are currently 50% booked for 2018. Once a particular cruise is fully booked, a wait list is set up for that cruise date. We do get 2 or 3 cancellations per cruise and there is no obligation to place your name on the wait list for as many cruise dates as you like. If your name comes up on a given cruise date, we will give you a call. If the date doesn't suit when we call, we simply call the next person on the wait list for that particular cruise. Our 2017 cruises were fully booked by the end of April, 2017 .
We are looking forward to our 37th season cruising the historic waterways of Ontario. The Trent-Severn Waterway and the World Heritage Rideau Canal have been operating since 1833. The Trent-Severn Waterway was not fully open to thru navigation until 1920. Both waterways are part of Canada's National Parks and are open from mid-May to mid-October.
Whether it be your first or a return, we look forward to welcoming you aboard the Kawartha Voyageur for a refreshing and memorable voyage.
