Owner description: There is no better way to see our Port than from the water. Take a tour with Nomada Charters for just that. We have the River Rider which is available for one hour sightseeing tours on a pontoon boat. You will take a leisurely trip up Lynn Valley River and into the Black Creek Nature Reserve. Along the way you will see prestigious homes, exquisite yachts and wildlife. While enjoying the sights you will be provided with colourful commentary, peppered with interesting and comical historical lore and a little island music to go with the experience. We also provide private charters and can accommodate bus tours.

This was a wonderful 1 hour tour up the River. Captain John is friendly and knowledgeable. The tour is well worth the $10.00 Seniors fee.

After 2 attempts to enjoy this cruise we were finally able to do so at the end of August. The ninety minute cruise was great value for the money and allowed us to see Port Dover from a different vantage point. We cruised towards Long Point and back listening to great music that made us feel like we were far... More

As Queen B from Fun Tillys of Tillsonburg I was the hostess and organizer of our 1st Annual Pirate Potluck Cruise and EVERYONE aboard had a terrific time. For the potluck lunch there was plenty of tables with shade and even a BBQ on board to assist in heating food. Beverages are not allowed on board due to licensing but... More

We took our relatives to Port Dover expecting to go on a boat ride.My husband had received a call from the company saying that only the river cruise was available for that day. When we got there,a wedding party was preparing to go on the Lake tour. The river tour had been canceled. We were very disappointed.

The river cruise is a leisurely time which lets you sit back and relax on a nice day. View numerous beautiful homes along the riverfront and if you are lucky you may see some wild life - blue heron crane, some pond turtles, beaver, birds. I have taken the cruise several times during the past four years.

We took the Nomada Charters river cruise with a bus group of 46 people. Our visit to Port Dover started with the river cruise followed by lunch at the Erie Beach hotel and a great play at the Lighthouse Festival Theatre - a really great day! The 1 hour tour was great - very peaceful, interesting and historic. We saw... More

During our time there we went on several boat rides with nomada charters. We did the river cruise which was great, there was so much... More

This review is a little late, but I am finally have time to wind down from our busy summer of traveling and finally going through pictures. While going through the pictures I was reminding of this company. We had planned on visiting Port Dover, going for a hotdog, exploring the shops and checking out the beach. We went for a... More

Board the (65') 'Kayloe' and go for a 90 minute cruise on Lake Erie. Sit back and relax with a glass of beer or wine and hear some of the local history along the shores of the lake. There is always a nice breeze on the lake in summertime. Often you are far enough away from the shore that binoculars... More

We took this cruise but it goes 45 minutes straight out into Lake Ontario. It is interesting when you by the sailboats and speed boats but once you are beyond that there is nothing. You are too far from shore to really see anything there they point out. There is another 45 minutes to return and on the return they... More
