SEELEY'S BAY -

A special event on Friday, September 28th recognized the improvements to the Seeley’s Bay Municipal Harbour and welcomed Le Boat to its community.

Starting in 2019, Le Boat guests will be able to enjoy one-way cruising on the Rideau Canal for the first time.
 
“This is an amazing day for us. This is a big fish for our little bay." Stated Peggy Sweet-McCumber, chair of the Seeley’s Bay Area Resident’s Association (SBARA) to more than 100 people in attendance. "Having tours departing from the bay will support our local businesses and revitalize our gorgeous village on the river.”

Just one year ago Le Boat announced the company’s expansion into North America, opening their main base in Smiths Falls. “With rave reviews and 82% occupancy, we are delighted to say Canada has been unprecedented success for Le Boat,” said Cheryl Brown Le Boat’s Global Managing Director.

The 2019 season will see four additional new boats on the Rideau Canal that include the state-of-the-art Horizon 5.  Located in 8 European countries with 900 self-drive cruiser boats from a network of over 35 different departure bases Le Boat brings over 50 years of experience in the industry to Canada.
 
Seeley’s Bay event attendees were treated to a tour of Le Boat’s Horizon 4 and received copies of its world circulated 2019 Boating Vacations guide that features the Rideau Canal on its cover.

“I’m delighted to see Le Boat’s expansion in Leeds Grenville,” said Ann Weir Economic Development Manager for the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville. “The press and marketing coverage that Le Boat has generated is extensive and benefits the entire region.”
