Grand River Dinner Cruise – In My Own Backyard

Welcome to My Own Backyard!

Welcome back to this week’s feature of In My Own Backyard! This week join me for a leisurely dinner cruise down the Grand River onboard one of Grand River Dinner Cruise’s three boats, the Grand River Princess, Grand River Queen, or Grand River Belle.

Grand Experience Outdoor Adventure Company :: The Grand River

Grand River Dinner Cruises has been operating since 1978 and is located in the County of Brant, approximately 30 kilometres south of Hamilton, making it a short drive from Toronto.

Grand River Dinner Cruises

After arriving at the “port” of Grand River Dinner Cruises, you will be briefly entertained by the Blazing Fiddles prior to boarding.

Grand River Dinner Cruises offers a scenic 2 hour cruise down the Grand River while enjoying lunch or a roast beef dinner (which was REALLY good). Lunch is served Tuesday to Sunday and dinner is only served on Saturday’s and Sunday’s.

The Grand River Dinner Cruises offers a low-key, laid back atmosphere, away from the crowds and is the perfect way to spend a couple of hours. We all have to eat at some point, right?  And yes!  Alcoholic drinks are available for purchase!

All Aboard!
The perfect way to enjoy the scenery!

While you are in the area, make sure that you explore one of Ontario’s big cities.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Due to COVID-19 Grand River is not offering lunch or dinner cruises this season, but they are offering scenic river cruises.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s feature of In My Own Backyard.   I’m off exploring again to see what else I can find In My Own Backyard. Until next week…..

    Wow this looks great and can’t go wrong with a nice roast for lunch! Anything away from crowds is my happy place. But what are Blazing Fiddles? I’ve not heard of this act before.

    It’s funny – I’ve lived in the area my whole life and have never done this! My husband is from Dunnville so we’ve spent time near the Grand River often, but never a cruise. I’ll have to check it out!

    Oooh this sounds like it would make a great date! I love eating while watching the world go by…and it looks like such a relaxing place to have a glass of vino. 😉

    Hopefully they will start running this again once covid-19 has calmed down.
