General FAQ

Is the whole bottom of the boat glass?

No. There is a large section of the bottom of the boat that is glass, in some vessels there are two areas. And the shipwrecks are easily viewed over the sides of the boats as our water is very clean and clear! The glass bottom areas are as large as permitted by Transport Canada.


Invasive Species

How can we reduce the risk posed by invasive species? 

  • At Blue Heron Cruises our full-time gardening team provides careful management of our extensive pollinator-friendly gardens, with lots of native planting. In addition, we source all our garden materials locally at the wonderful Peninsula Out of Doors. 
  • All Blue Heron vessels travel exclusively in this body of water meaning we do not pose a risk for the introduction of non-native aquatic species.
  • You can help out during your visit!  Before leaving home or hitting the trails take a moment to clean the soles of your footwear and your backpack, and if travelling with a four legged friend, be sure to include the puppy paws.
