The Kawartha Voyageur will be welcoming our first group of 2022 passengers aboard this evening. This cruise from Rosedale at the summit of the Trent-Severn Waterway to Kingston will also include a loop through the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River. Next week we will be cruising on the World Heritage Rideau Canal from Kingston to Ottawa.
We are currently 80% booked for 2022. There are still a selection of dates available on all of our three routes.
Ontario Waterway Cruises Inc. remains committed to the health, safety, comfort and enjoyment of our passengers and crew aboard the Kawartha Voyageur. Ontario Waterway Cruises Inc. is subject to federal transportation regulations and Transport Canada currently requires all passengers and crew on overnight voyages to be fully vaccinated. In this regard, we will only be accepting reservations for our 2022 season from fully vaccinated persons. Proof of your second shot will need to be submitted to our office by regular mail or email when making your reservation. Given that "booster shots" are now considered necessary to maintain an adequate level of protection, proof of your booster shot will also need to be submitted to our office at least two weeks prior to sailing. Please refer to our current COVID-19 protocols under GENERAL INFO in the main menu at the top of this page. Last year, we installed HEPA filters, UV lights in the air ducts and a large HRV to increase the air exchange rate. The enhanced indoor air quality combined with the vaccination of all passengers and crew served everyone well. We did not experience any COVID-19 cases.
The US/CDN exchange rate continues to be very favourable for our friends from the United States. The present cost of our 2022 cruises including tax is $US 2,071. (subject to change according to the exchange rate when your final balance is paid).
You may view our 2022 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.
2022 will be our 40th 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.
Thank you for your continued interest in our cruises here in Ontario. Whether it be your first or a return, we look forward to welcoming you aboard the Kawartha Voyageur for a refreshing and memorable voyage.
