  • While we enjoyed the 1 hour and 30 minute cruise, but it was a little boring. It was enjoyable, but there wasn't too much to see. We didn't get to see the shipwrecks - they called with an explanation....  more »
  • Good operator to get to/from Flowerpot Island. Well organized, friendly. Boats were clean, acceptable COVID-19 practices. However, it is difficult to keep 2m distance on a small boat even with...  more »
  • the cruise itself was fun for everyone. just expected when you buy a glass bottom boat cruise that you would see more then 2 sunken ships. for the money you spend you get a decently long trip just be aware the ships you see are at the very beginning the rest is just a boat ride.
  • Heard a lot, but visited the place for the first time on Jul 21, 2018, since we came to Canada in 2010. Approx 3 hours drive (266kms) from Brampton, the highway itself presents a lot scenic beauty dotted with eateries at where ever you wish to take a break. Blue Heron is located very conveniently or rather you just bump in at their location. The person manning the parking was very courteous, he guided us to ticket counter, it was smooth process with ferry schedules posted at every places. We got our tickets and parked our vehicles (parking fee included in price of tickets). We boarded glass bottom ferry with non stop schedule ferrying us to most beautiful scenic excursion on crystal clear water. The elaborate commentary about spots was informative. One gets absorbed in lap of nature so much that he wishes the time to stop. Ship wrecks visible at lake bed, flowerpot island and other nearby spots along ferry routes were awesome. The journey on ferry was worth every single penny spent on buying it, rather it much more that it. Wish to visit it more often in future. To enjoy make it around 10 am, to get ferry schedule of your choice, as it gets much busy as days progresses. Glass bottom non stop is the best for first timers.
