The three-level, 104-foot Lady Muskoka has been meandering down the Muskoka River and into Lake Muskoka, granting up to 300 passengers at a time an intimate look at the wildlife, the nearby cottages, and Millionaire's Row.

Took a the 12 noon cruise 9/18/13 - nice warm sunny day. Cruise itself is interesting lots to see - both natural and man made. Staff are polite and friendly. Overall decent value for the money in terms of these types of cruises.

Only complaint (and this is a BIG one...) is the SEATS!! They have these fold away Samsonite seats - a little padding, but doesn't help much when you are stuck on them for almost 3 hours! Not much in the way of back support - so they become very uncomfortable after the first hour....

A better cruise for our money is the Island Queen out of Parry Sound. Seats on there are long bench style - fiberglass. So at least you can shift or spread out a bit on them. We've been on that cruise 3 times now, and will likely take that one again in years to come. I can't see us returning to the Lady Muskoka.

The price is a bit high for a 2.5 hour boat trip "for seniors". Other than that, this is a nice attraction.

Its a great way to spend your afternoon, if ever in Bracebridge and have a few hours to spare.
The cruise departed at 12 noon and shortly after lunch was served (optional). Option between Chicken, Fish and Beef.served with tea or coffee and then a light pastry dessert dish...if your looking for a gourmet succulent dish, this is not the place. The lunch was ok.

I enjoyed the trip down/up the river and around the lake and back. It took approx 40 mins either way and the rest of the time spend cruising around the lake. The time went by so fast before long we were on our way back to port.

Good trip for the family with kids or a couple or even a group. The views were wonderful, I felt like staying and not heading back to the concrete jungle of the city.

Great cruise, I would do this again...enjoyable!!

Our Pathfinder unit ( girls aged 12-15) and some parents went on this 2& 3/4 hour cruise......we had an enjoyable day sitting on the top deck in the sun and seeing the sights........the Captain did a commentary as we travelled the Muskoka River and Lake Muskoka.. we could have done the lunch, but we had planned to do dinner at Riverside Restaurant afterwards

the Lady Muskoka is a comfortable ship and was safe for young children when we were on board with several nursery school classes (not a problem).
They provide a narration as they cruise up the Muskoka river and back.
There is lovely scenery along the way.

The day we took the trip the food was rather picnic style, with tables on ta shaded deck.

The upper deck is probably not accessible for the mobility challenged but I think there is no problem on the main deck.
