No Open Water Transfers!
All three of our super-modern boats are specially designed with an extremely shallow draught to operate in the waters surrounding Tobermory. They allow us easy access to all points of interest even with todays currently low water levels without doing “open water transfers”.
Glass Bottoms Designed For The 21st Century!
In the past, glass bottoms in Tobermory were constructed as a viewing chute that you would have to look over a railing to see the glass located far down below.
But it was time for a change! All of our boats have tempered glass built into the deck that you can actually stand on and look down at the attractions below!! Our shallow draught improves glass bottom viewing by letting far more light under the boat to illuminate the attractions vs. the older displacement hull vessels which shadow the area under the glass bottom.
Stay Protected on the Water!
The Frontier and Explorer feature specially designed UV resistant canopy’s constructed from Makrolon Polycarbonate sheets. The canopy’s shelter our passengers from damaging UV radiation on the sunny days and the wind and water spray on the cooler days. The windows roll right up into the roof to allow for flawless photographs and to let the cool breeze of the lake refresh you on the hot days.
Fast! Quiet! Safe! & Environmentally Friendly!
Our vessels have been built to meet Transport Canada Near Coastal Class 2 Specifications and the Frontier and Crusader are Positive Buoyancy Foam Filled Construction.
The propulsion systems on our vessels are super-efficient prop-drive, saving fuel and cutting down on harmful emissions while maintaining outstanding performance for an exciting ride.
We have done everything possible to ensure a quiet and fume free experience while admiring the attractions we visit on our tour. Our gasoline motors are virtually silent at an idol and produce next to no exhaust fumes, they all meet EPA 3 Star Emissions Specs. Our Diesels are equipped with resonators and an under-water exhaust to keep them quiet and are EPA Tier 2, IMO and RCD certified.
