About this Business
When Captain Andy boarded his first ship at age 17, he had no time for sightseeing - the young merchant marine was too busy hauling iron ore, road salt, and coal to factories along the banks of the Great Lakes. Maybe that's why Captain Andy now takes such delight in whizzing past idyllic islands at 45 mph in the newest addition to his fleet, a Wildcat catamaran. Though an adrenalin rush accounts for some of the Wildcat's appeal, Captain Andy is most pleased that the boat's speeds can help him expose passengers to even more island attractions during his informative and entertaining tours.
In 2017 Brockville restored and opened Canada's oldest Railway Tunnel. It runs 1/4 mile under the city and features a LED light show and many interesting geological features. It is a free attraction that is just a short walk from the docks. It's a must-see when visiting Brockville - the City of the 1000 Islands.
A native Ontarian, Captain Andy touts the Brockville waterfront and happily points out his favorite waterfront parks for picnicking and fishing during his trips. In the same vein, his cruising company offers seven diverse tours that incorporate adventure, theatre performances, and local sightseeing to help riders experience all the wonders of the area by water. The seasoned sailor also recognizes the advantage of helming his smaller ships; their compact size not only ensures more intimate tours and more time with passengers but allows them to duck into the region's narrow channels where larger boats and determined icebergs can't follow.
