"Unique"  "The Best"  "A Hidden Treasure"
"Just Plain Awesome!" - passenger comments.

We board our 60 year old Peterborough Cedar Strip vessel for a unique voyage on the historic Black River, Green, and Severn River Systems.

The "Piratos" is driven by a quiet 4 stroke engine, can be covered upon request and has all the safety equipment on board.

Our journey and Captain Albert's award winning commentary may include The Old Mill, the confluence of the Black and Green Rivers, the site of the oldest publicly owned Hydro Electric power dam in the world, the fabulous reflections in the Black River Gorge as well as viewing the edge of the Great Canadian Shield.

We may combine our journey with a beverage stop or a picnic lunch at a historic log cabin.
