The RMS Segwun and the Wenonah II
Admire the iconic Muskoka landscapes from aboard the RMS Segwun, which dates back to 1887. The Steamships of Muskoka is one of the oldest publicly traded companies in Canada. This company has been around since 1926, and they have been sailing to and from Ontario’s beautiful cottage country for over 80 years. When people think about a steamship, they think about an old, wooden boat with no air conditioning and maybe long lines for food.
You can go on a great voyage on an old steamship that takes you all the way across the world. Steamships are still around because they are inexpensive, classy, safe, and smooth sailing. But new steamships use modern technology such as air conditioning, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, and other modern conveniences to take you from the place. This is a good spot for tours and private parties and celebrations. This is a larger boat that can hold many people at once. This is a good place to go on your boat.
