  A travel guide with a personal touch!

The Keewatin steamship

​at dock in Port McNicoll


This Great Lakes' steamship has a fascinating history that saw her go into private hands following years of service on the Great Lakes and across Georgian Bay.

​Today, she is moored at the waterfront in Port McNicoll and welcomes visitors.










The steamship "Assiniboia", shown below, once sailed from Port McNicoll and had a lengthy career on the Great Lakes, including Georgian Bay. This photograph was taken by author-photographer, George Czerny, in the 1960s from atop a grain elevator which once stood there at the waterfront.
