“Beautiful scenic cruise but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We decided to take the Miss Midland out of Midland instead of nearby Pen. It was a beautiful day to be on the waters of Georgian Bay. The scenery was lovely. Didn't care for the band which played throughout the cruise. They played really old tunes and nothing from the 90s+. Great for retirees but no one else. I would rather have heard more dialog about the islands and landmarks we were cruising by. Still, a nice lazy afternoon on the water. The washrooms were clean and you could enjoy a beverage or two so not bad that way.

“Just average boat tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Too expensive for what you get. Not sure what tour one of the reviewers said they didn't talk about the history or what to look for, because the recording was going on our tour (2pm Tuesday). The tour was relaxing, actually put me to sleep, but relaxing on vacation is good. Honestly would have rather spent my money on a booze cruise or something more fun.

“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Take this Miss Midland for a 2.5 hour cruise through the waters of Georgian Bay. Enjoy the breeze as you sail past islands upon islands, filled with spectacular rock landscapes and many gorgeous homes and cottages. Snack bar on board.

“Not what I expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Miss Midland was unable to find my on the reservation list after booking a month in advance, but still had room an hour prior to departure. This was billed as a scenic cruise, but there were no descriptions of where we were, what we were looking at, what history happened in the area or what wildlife was around. This was more like a booze cruise that moved too slow to get a breeze on a really hot day. There was a singer downstairs who sang well, but personally I'd rather not sit a few rows away from a singer with a guitar when I'm trying to relax. Much of the cruise was too far from the land to see much. If you want scenery and/or wildlife, go to Wye Marsh.

“Diddn't Get the Trip as Advertised”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Boat trip was lovely but trip took a detour. Stopped at Discovery harbor. Had 1/2 hour to walk around, but heat kept us near the water. Picked up a large group of young campers for return trip. Wince we sat at Discovery harbour for 40 minutes we didn't complete the entire water route. Trip should have been discounted.
