WINNIPEG — Seasonal adventurists can now splash down the Red and Assiniboine rivers with the launch of Splash Dash Tours for the season.
If you aren’t heading to a lake anywhere this weekend, a cruise down Winnipeg’s rivers may be the next best thing.
“The boats and crew are ready, and the season is now in full swing,” said Gord Cartwright, owner and operator of Splash Dash Tours.
“We hope to start Water Bus operations in the coming weeks, but it’s great to be able to start tours for the May long weekend.”
Half-hour tours of Winnipeg’s downtown waterways leave The Forks harbour every 15 minutes from 10 a.m. to sunset, seven days a week. Boat captains provide commentary and historical insights on many points of interest along the way. Tickets are available at the Splash Dash kiosk at The Forks dock. The fee is $11.50 for adults and $9.50 for seniors and youth. Kids three and under are free.
Bee2gether Tandem Bike Rentals is also open for the season at the corner of Forks Market Road and Waterfront Drive.
