Summer boat tours from Lakeview Park Marina to Peche Island are returning.

The tours were paused due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements but prior to the pandemic, in 2019, approximately 1,300 riders enjoyed a trip to and from the island.

Tours are scheduled to begin the week of July 18th, 2022, with pre-registration (highly recommended) opening Wednesday, July 13th. Tours will be available every Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday (weather permitting) until early October.

Tours begin each day at 10am and the last ride to the island takes place at 2pm.   A maximum of six riders can travel each voyage, with up to two trips crossing each hour.

Tours will leave the marina on the hour and return from Peche Island on the half-hour. Cost for the round trip is $7.75 per person with the exception of children under the age of three who may ride for free.

Anyone interested can reserve a spot by calling (519) 255-1161. Pets and larger personal items such as bikes are not permitted due to safety and capacity concerns. Guests are asked to arrive 15 minutes early to sign a waiver, review a safety video, and be fitted for a personal flotation device (PFD), which is required to wear on the boat.
