Trenton, ON: Summer is here and with it the return of the Bay of Quinte Boat Cruise. The Quinte West Chamber of Commerce invites residents and visitors alike to enjoy a three hour cruise around the
Bay of Quinte aboard the beautiful Island Queen. This year, the cruise will take place on Friday,
July 15 offering two cruises – an Afternoon Cruise starting at 1:00 pm and an Evening Cruise starting at 7:00pm.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy the Bay of Quinte scenery that can only be appreciated from the water,” says Amber Darling, Chair of the Bay of Quinte Boat Cruise “With the continued enthusiasm shown from the community; this has been a great asset to the Trenton Downtown Festival on the Bay.”
Passengers are invited to relax aboard the majestic Mississippi paddlewheeler from Kingston 1000 Islands Boat Lines. Both cruises are open to the public, and are wheelchair accessible. Afternoon Cruise tickets are $45 and Evening Cruise tickets are $65. Special discounts of $10 per person for groups of ten or more are available for both cruises.
Enjoy a beautiful scenic cruise in the afternoon with food and drink available for purchase on board. The evening cruise has a selection of desserts from Chef Nelson at Batawa Ski Hill, wine tasting and cheeses from Saputo. A cash bar is located on the first and second decks with open air seating on the top deck. The band South of 7 will be entertaining everyone with live music on the evening cruise adding country flair. Mystical Fireworks will be presenting a spectacular fireworks show so come and see the dazzling display from the water.
“We start boarding each cruise about a half hour before departure at Fraser Park, in downtown
Trenton,” says Stephanie Wilson, event coordinator. “We encourage everyone to spend the day downtown and enjoy the side walk sale, Arts Quinte West Show in Compass Court and live music from Downtown Trenton’s Festival on the Bay and then join us on the cruise.”
