Experience something new on the water in muskoka


It’s a strange boat…it’s round like a donut. It has a hole in the middle just like a donut. And in that hole is a Korean BBQ. Six adults and 2 children can sit around and have a great time grilling and chilling!

Strange? You bet! But an awesome concept and so much fun! As a bonus, it’s eco-friendly. It’s electric, with zero-carbon emissions. So, no funky fuel smell, and loud engine noise as you bbq your favorite meat, veggies, or vegan meals as you drift down the Humber river with loved ones and friends.

And the best part of it all is that you get to captain it, and you do NOT need a boating license either! How cool is that? However, you do need to be over 21 with a valid driver’s license.

On some weekends you enjoy Muskaka River in Bracebridge and others in Gravenhurst. Details will be posted before May 30th, 2023.   Send us a quick email at with your details and we will get back to you.

You and your friends can book the boat Friday evening for a sunset cruise and, a couple of times on Sat and Sun. The duration is a generous 3-hour trip, so you can get to get to grilling, chilling, swimming, tanning, and creating some awesome memories!

So bring your favorite BBQ food, awesome friends or family, and prepare to be the most unique vessel on the water! Bring on the good times.

One thing we can tell you for sure is that you will be photographed by many curious onlookers, and find yourself on social media pages!

The world is enjoying them..It's MUSKOKA'S Turn Now.
