Canada’s 1000 Islands are magical at the best of times, but never so much as when you are sailing among them. To make this dream come true, the 1000 Islands Cruise Lines have commandeered some of the best river captains around to drive their prize vessels – The Island Belle, The Star and The Island Queen III. Captain Stephen Steeles has been involved with the company since 1980 and has an ever growing passion for these waterways.
During his almost 30 years on the water, Steeles has handled all of the 1000 Island Cruise Line boats in and around the islands and has taken longer voyages to Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec. “I have seen every channel and every one of the 1,871 islands as well as thousands of sunsets, sunrises and rainbows. On a map people just see a tiny sliver of a waterway, but when they get here, they realize it is so much bigger than they thought. One of my favourite sections is the Admiralty Islands and the Bateau Channel. It is just so magical on these waters and people can’t believe we have something this beautiful so close to home.”
So passengers will be delighted not only by the stunning scenery but by the knowledge that they are in the hands of a passionate, seasoned captain. As Steeles says, “This is a one-of- a- kind, eye-catching vessel and we treat everyone as if they are coming into our home. I take it personally if they don’t have a good time. After all, we are the food, fun and entertainment industry, and everyone from the owners to the crew are committed to that!” And so, the magic continues…
