Collingwood is a beautiful town located in the heart of Georgian Bay. With such stunning scenery it's no wonder that we, Collingwood Charters, chose to host our boat tours here! It's the perfect place to sit back, unwind, and enjoy some time out on the water. Fortunately for us, however, these certainly aren't the only reasons to love this vibrant town! In this blog post, we'll share more about why we choose Collingwood for our business. We'll also highlight some of the amazing things that visitors can see and do while in town!
A Little Collingwood History
Collingwood has a long and rich history dating back to the early 1800s. This charming town was originally founded as a sawmill settlement and later became an important lumbering and shipbuilding centre. Today, Collingwood's thriving tourism industry pays homage to its nautical past while also offering visitors a wide range of modern amenities and attractions.
Why We Love Collingwood
There are countless reasons why we love doing business in Collingwood! Let's take a closer look at some of our favourite things below.
Collingwood is the perfect location for our business. Not only are we lucky enough to embark on our tours from the historic Collingwood Harbour, but we also get to share the gorgeous landscape and scenery of the surrounding Georgian Bay with our guests. Passengers aboard our ship, the Huronic, get to experience the beauty of the area from the open waters, including a look at the famous Nottawasaga Lighthouse. This lighthouse has been a Collingwood landmark since 1858 and is just one of the many unique sights that visitors can see while on our tour!
The Tourism Industry
Collingwood's tourism industry is booming! The town has something to offer visitors of all ages and interests, from boat tours and fishing charters to hiking and biking trails, shopping, and dining. However, one of the most popular attractions in the Collingwood area has got to be the Blue Mountains. Just a short drive away, this world-renowned ski resort is the perfect place to hit the slopes or enjoy a scenic gondola ride.
We've been fortunate enough to meet so many incredible people since starting our business in Collingwood. From our regular customers and charter groups to the friendly staff at the local businesses, everyone here has made us feel welcome and part of the community.
