Splash Dash Tours start Friday

  • Print

Some of Manitoba’s lakes might still be frozen but Winnipeg’s rivers aren’t.

And so, Splash Dash Tours is set to begin its half-hour guided excursions through downtown Winnipeg via the Red and Assiniboine rivers.

"The boats are in great shape and the crew here is ready to go," said Gord Cartwright, owner and operator of Splash Dash.

Beginning on Friday, the tours will 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, which cost $11 for adults and $9 for seniors and youth, are available at the Splash Dash kiosk at The Forks dock.

Cartwright said he is still waiting for water levels to recede a bit more before he’ll put the Splash Dash water bus service into operation.
