Haunted Ghost Tours Aboard the S.S. Keewatin

SS Keewatin Ghost Tours


Known as the most haunted ship in all of the western hemisphere, the Keewatin has been lurking in an unfamiliar land for over 45 years in the muddy, dark, depths of the Kalamazoo River, Michigan.

It has now has travelled back to its rightful home on the shores of Georgian Bay in the historic Port McNicoll, and yet the chilling vibrations of ghostly apparitions have only gotten louder and more present. This 107 year old vessel echoes with the sounds of a distant past; one shared by thousands and cherished by all of those who sailed on her.

 Legends tell the tale of how the great ship Keewatin sailed the shores of Northern Canada from 1907, but few know of the colourful personalities whose spirits and secrets remained on the ship long after the final paying passengers wished their goodbyes. Launched 5 years before Titanic and sister to the Empress of Ireland, Keewatin is perfectly preserved, almost as if it was still in 1907. It’s stories of paranormal experiences were reported as early as 1910, when passengers began to recount strange sensations, odd sounds, and visions of people dressed as if it were centuries before. Paranormal experts have documented extremely high levels of spirit activity all over the ship. Visitors to the ship can feel drops in temperature and rapid shifts in the energy field between rooms and within the labyrinth of chambers.

Come visit the Keewatin and test the energy bands with the guidance of our experts to see for yourself the phenomena. Some of you may cross paths the famous ship spirit Rosie who might just grace you with a dance if you are lucky enough to catch a glimpse.

This fall for only 6 dates the Kee will open her doors in the evening for Ghost Tours. This October 16th & 17th and then again October 23rd & 24th, 2014, and finally October 30th and 31st. The stories talk about ghosts appearing after the sun has set. We are offering 72 individuals per night the opportunity to walk the ship’s decks once the sun has set. These lantern guided tours will show off the glory and beauty of this vessel while stirring up the nights energies! Come join us!!!

Tickets: $15/person (including children and seniors). Tickets are available for purchase only online:

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
