To make the most of the summer, try and get away on a few day trips on weekends. The trick is not having to drive too far. Enjoy a summer escape on the Kawartha Spirit boat, part of Stoney Lake Boat Cruises, docks at the public dock adjacent to the Viamede Resort in Woodview, Ontario and tours Stoney Lake.
The two-hour Kawartha Spirit boat cruise is a bargain at $23 for adults and $12 for children (5-12), with children under 5 free. You can soak up the sun while enjoying a cocktail on the upper deck while cruising along Stoney Lake.
The Kawartha Spirit is offering five-hour fall colour cruises up to Thanksgiving that board at the public dock beside Viamede Resort. Cruises take place Sept. 12, 13, 19, 20, 27, Oct. 4 and 10, 2015 boarding at 10:30 a.m. and leaving at 11 a.m. Cost is $60 per person (including taxes) or $55 per person for groups of 20 or more. Call 705-654-5253 to reserve.
