Theodore Tugboat Has Moved To Ontario & This Is Where To Find It

Canada's iconic boat, Theodore Tugboat, has moved from Halifax to Ontario.

The 65-foot life-sized reproduction of the beloved television character travelled across the country and now calls Hamilton home.

The tugboat is the ambassador of Swim Drink Fish and a Great Lakes Guide and will be arriving at Port Dalhousie on July 19.

If you want to see the adorable yellow boat, it will be docked at the Dalhousie Yacht Club on July 20, and the public is welcome to visit.

Then on July 21, you'll be able to spot the Theodore Tugboat back in Hamilton.
