It was a calm, clear night when the SS Comet set sail across the Great Lakes. Like many nights such as these, it was smooth sailing as far as the eye could see. Who would have guessed that in just a matter of hours, the ship would sink below the waves of Lake Ontario, taking all but a few of her passengers with her. Will you go down with the ship or succeed in reaching a lifeboat?

Throughout the evening, you are encouraged to interact with Museum staff to solve the mystery, discover actual shipwreck artifacts and take part in interactive games and activities. At the end of the night, all will be revealed… Who snagged a spot in a lifeboat, and who remained aboard our sinking ship? Prizes are up for grabs for those who solved the mystery!

This is an 18+ event. Tickets are $20 and include admission and a drink ticket; additional non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.

The Museum is excited to partner with Something in the Water Brewing to offer an evening of music, socializing, and food & drink services.

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
