Sunset Cruises 2015 Year in Review

Captain Potts has put the two boats away for the winter - Peerless II & Idyllwood.




All staff enjoyed end of season appreciation dinner in November.  It was the Captains turn to serve all his staff with a nice dinner.



New this past season - 3 days in June, there was a 2 for 1 special which many passengers enjoyed.  Many visitors to Muskoka joined  Captain Potts while he shared his commentary of the area.



NEW FEATURE this 2015 season - Idyllwood operated every Tuesday for 9 weeks - starting June 30th/2015 from Sherwood Inn main dock.  The guests at the Inn  along with many visitors to the area, enjoyed the spectacular Sunsets on Lake Joseph this summer.  Afternoon sightseeing cruises were a hit as well.

Annual Fireworks cruise - Peerless II joined the Walkers Point Canada Day Celebrations on lovely Lake Muskoka.

Peerless II  Birthday Celebration Saturday, July 18th with special 1 hour cruises and birthday cake for all that joined the Captain & Crew.

Fridays all summer long Peerless II joined the Rosseau Farmers Market with 1 hour cruises from the village dock.  Passengers enjoyed the chance to see Lake Rosseau and cruise into Morgan's Bay with        Captain Potts & Crew.




Special Feature summer 2015 - All Day Lake Joseph Cruise - Passengers boarded at Port Carling for the adventure.  People at Port Sandfield stopped in traffic with the swing bridge watched as Peerless II departed Lake Rosseau and entered into the lovely Lake Joseph.  Passengers aboard Peerless II waved to the onlookers.  Lunch was served on this special voyage while Captain Potts shared the high lights of the area.


WEDDINGS aboard Peerless II  - very special to have the Captain stop the ship for the wedding vows for the bride & groom.  Then after the wedding vows are completed the ship completes the special cruise for the couple with their family & friends.  Many of our previous wedding couples join Peerless II for their anniversary.


Weddings aboard Sunset Cruises -Idyllwood -  Very popular for the bridle party to be picked up at the bride's private cottage dock and carry her with her bridle party to the church for her grand arrival.


SUNSET DINNER CRUISES - this summer aboard Peerless II were amazing, followed by the moon in the clear sky.


IDYLLWOOD - joined the "Rosseau Classic Cruise Event"  Saturday, August 1/2015 with special 1 hour cruises for the passengers.  This was the 8th Annual Rosseau Classic Cruise event.



FALL COLOURS - Sunset Cruises Peerless II & Idyllwood had many amazing fall colours cruises out on the Muskoka Lakes.

Captain Potts & Crew wish to thank everyone for a wonderful 2015 season out on the Muskoka Lakes this summer - we hope to see everyone again next season.
