Take in the Sights

Cruise along the Windsor waterfront and see if from a new perspective on Macassa Bay with one of the newly launched Windsor Premier River Cruises.  Spend some relaxing time on the water with friends or even charter the boat for a private special occasion.

Spend Time On The Water

If the big boat is not your thing, venture out on the water by canoe, kayak or stand-up paddle board along River Canard.  Catch one of the stunning sunsets or enjoy a day in the sunshine with friends – this is definitely something that should be on your summer to-do list!

Get crafty

Your new favourite coffee mug may just be one that you paint yourself! Let your creative side have free reign as you spend the afternoon creating your next masterpiece.  And if you want to take it even further make sure to join one of the organized pottery workshops out on the patio.
