Water Taxis Make a Splash in Muskoka

Water Taxis Make a Splash in Muskoka  

The first long weekend of the season is upon us. Dock parties on the lakes of Muskoka are a lot of summer fun!  Get safely home via water taxi.This alone is cause for celebration.  On the weekend to-do list? Get out on the lake!
Visiting friends via boat often results in impromptu dock gatherings with invitations to stay for dinner and cocktails. How many times has this occurred and you wished you could stay, enjoy yourself, the great company and a few laughs? If only there was a taxi service that ran the lakes late into the evening! While most marinas have offered day time taxi services for running cottagers and their guests out to island properties; there has never been a taxi that runs after dusk.

Good news if you are a cottager on Lake Rosseau or Lake Joseph. There is a new water taxi service available just in time for the Victoria Day long weekend.

Safe. Reliable. Responsible.

UberBoat, powered by Summer Water Sports, will be operating on long weekends beginning this Friday May 16th, running from 5pm to 1am, Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 1am. Cottagers want to be safe and responsible yet we all want to relax, de-stress from the city or work week and have fun. Now we can enjoy dining out at one of our fabulous lakeside restaurants or pubs, visit friends and enjoy a cocktail without the worry of how we are getting home.

This is a test.

Rachel Williams, Marketing and Community Manager of Uber tells me that "Uber is a technology app that connects riders with on-demand transportation at the tap of a button, in over 100 cities globally, including Toronto through taxis, black car and SUV services." While the service was founded in 2009, this will be the first weekend UberBOAT is operating in Muskoka, so please be patient. To find out more visit Download the Uber app, sign up and… away we go! Best wishes to UberBOAT and SWS for a successful first run and wishing you all a safe and happy long weekend in Muskoka!
