Discovery Cruise

75-mins on the Island Belle: Departs 9:00pm

Get out on the water in time to catch the Canada Day fireworks. Set sail aboard the Island Belle along Kingston’s historic waterfront, your Captain will position the vessel for the best view of Kingston’s spectacular Canada Day fireworks display! Snacks and drinks are available for purchase from our onboard canteen.


Sunset Dinner Cruise

3-hrs on the Island Star: Departs 6:30pm

Enjoy a three-course dinner and live entertainment on a 3-hr cruise through the 1000 Islands. On Canada day exclusively, the Island Star will stay out longer than usual to watch the Canada Day fireworks display upon our return back into Kingston harbour.

We expect traffic to be busy and travel times to be longer than expected leading in to this holiday weekend. Please be reminded that cruise ticket reservations are not refundable, and all guests must be present at boarding time; it is not possible to board once the vessel’s departure safety preparations are underway, even if the vessel is still on the wharf. Please plan ahead and arrive early.
