Greetings to all in this brand new year! Let us all hope that the current COVID wave will end shortly and that we will soon have the freedom to relax our focus on this persistent threat to our wellbeing.
Last year, the upgraded indoor air quality combined with the vaccination of all passengers and crew served everyone well. We did not experience any COVID-19 cases. This fact provides a very positive outlook for the upcoming 2022 season which begins on May 15. We are currently 48% booked for 2022.
Ontario Waterway Cruises Inc. remains committed to the health, safety, comfort and enjoyment of our passengers and crew aboard the Kawartha Voyageur. We will continue to refine and update our COVID-19 protocols as appropriate. As of October 30, 2021 Transport Canada will be requiring all passengers and crew to be 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.
The US/CDN exchange rate continues to be very favourable for our friends from the United States. The current cost of our 2022 cruises including tax is $US 2,056. (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.
