The ice will soon be melting away on Ontario's gorgeous waters, and you can explore so many dreamy pools and lakes this spring. This unique water adventure won't just bring you stunning views from above, it will reveal what lies beneath the turquoise waves as well.

If you plan to spend your warm-weather days drifting around some of the province's stunning pools, then you need to plan a cruise on one of these boats.

Tobermory has become one of Ontario's prized gems, with its magical grotto and bright blue waters.
