Charter Cruises


Charter Cruises with Soo Locks Boat Tours are a distinctive way to provide a truly memorable party, special occasion, fun reunion, or company gathering. When you book a charter cruise with us, you receive exclusive use of one or more of our tour vessels. You also can design your own tour route, including any combination of the following…

  • Main St. Mary’s River shipping channel
  • Sugar Island’s Old North Channel
  • Locking through the Soo Locks

Tour Length
The minimum length of a Charter Cruise is 2 hours.

If you wish, you can extend the duration of your Charter Cruise to suit your desires. Additional cruising time can be purchased in ½ hour increments.

Food & Beverage
Food on-board adds to the fun! We have a wide range of menu options. Anything from light hors d’oeuvres to a prime rib or whitefish dinner is possible. A fully licensed bar is also available.
