FAQ
  • What is the difference between a Public Tour and a Private Charter?
    On a Private Charter, the entire boat and operator are reserved at an available time and date requested by a guest, and catered to their interests. The individual chartering the boat is purchasing all of the seats. For example, a Private Charter could be a couple celebrating a special occasion, or a group event. Contact Highland Boat Tours directly to book a Private Charter. A list of public tours will be posted on this website as they become available. We currently offer one weekly Public Tour, "Lost Haliburton Boat Tours", in partnership with the Haliburton Highlands Museum. On a Public Tour, individuals can purchase a seat or seats for a specific date, time and tour. Up to 10 passengers, all of whom may be unrelated, could be on this Public Tour. Contact Haliburton Highlands Museum directly to book tickets for this Public Tour.
  • What should I wear?
    While Lady of the Lake has a canopy, it is essentially an open boat. As temperatures on the water tend to be cooler, we recommend that you have a windbreaker and hat available. Sunscreen is also recommended.
  • How accessible is the "Lady of the Lake"?"
    You will be required to negotiate a few steps to enter and exit the boat. Terrain approaching docks may be uneven or irregular, and we recommend that you wear appropriate casual and comfortable footwear. Assistance will be provided by a crew member while passengers board and disembark.
  • What is your sailing season?
    Our sailing season is June to October.
  • How long will we be on the boat?
    Both Public Tours and Private Charters are approximately 1 ½ hours. Extended time may be arranged for a Private Charter.
  • Can we bring our own food and beverages on board?
    You are welcome to bring your own food and (non-alcoholic) drinks on board.
  • Can I bring alcoholic beverages on board?
    Government regulation prohibits the consumption of alcohol while on board this charter vessel. Please contact us to discuss any food/drink related options.
  • Let’s talk about children.
    Any plans to include children need to be discussed at the time of booking. Our policy is that children aged 12 and under must wear a life jacket (PFD).
  • Can we bring our dog?
    Sorry, no pets. We are pleased to recommend a local boarding facility.
  • What lakes will we be on?
    The tours are located on the beautiful 5 Lake chain, in the Haliburton Highlands. The main lake is Lake Kashagawigamog, adjoined by Head Lake and Grass Lake to the north, and Canning Lake to the south. Currently the access to Soyers Lake to the west, is not accessible for our boat. The tour taken can be one of our three programmed tours or customized for your pleasure. Please refer to the colour-coded map on our website to see options for your charter experience
  • Are there washrooms available?
    There are no facilities on board but there are public washrooms available within 5 minutes of the Haliburton town docks.
  • Where do we meet the boat?
    Boarding location will be arranged at the time of booking and may be at the Haliburton town docks or a private dock.
  • Are ticket prices/deposits/charter fees refundable?
    Private Charter fees paid are fully refundable up to 48 hours prior to departure, or if charter is cancelled by the operator due to forecasted weather conditions.
  • What about life jackets?
    We have on board a full complement of DOT approved life jackets. Alternately, you are welcome to bring your own Personal Floatation Device (PFD) to wear on board.
  • Is smoking/vaping permitted on board?
    For the safety and comfort of our guests, neither is permitted.
