Rainy Days and Outside Voices

July 17, 2017


Rainy days Pirate CruiseWe all know that is one of the wettest summer’s in that past decade in Muskoka.  Don’t let the rain keep you away. Muskoka Steamships & Discovery Centre has a number of rainy day activities that encourage outside voices and laughter.

Pirate Cruises – Rainy Days or Sunshine

The excitement begins dockside, when the pirates-in-training encounter members of the pirate crew.  Toy swords have been brandished; and toy muskets pointed until a hearty “argh matey” ignites giggles and squeals of fear.

Rain or shine, our piratical volunteers go all out to make our Pirate Cruise an unforgettable memory for all.  Captain Corbin talks of treasure. Captain Hook raises his hook above his head while his henchmen plot to board the ship to steal the treasure.  Only the enthusiastic brandishing of toy swards from the pirates-in-training lining the rail saves the day.

Ice Queen and Snow Princess Cruises

The sparkly dresses of the ice queens and snow princesses who join our cruise either July 22 or August 12, 2017 are never in danger of becoming damp. The entire adventure unfolds on our covered deck. Songs are sung, tales are told, and little girls’ fantasies are fulfilled on Wenonah II.  We sail rain or shine. Details are here.
