The Ackert Family - 30 Years of Cruising!
A Mid-Summer's Day Dream Come True
Following their retirement from full time farming in 1978, Lloyd and Helen Ackert continued to live on the family farm providing meals and accommodation to farm vacationers. And then came the dream!
From an idea on a rented houseboat in 1981, Lloyd and Helen and their
family created Ontario Waterway Cruises Inc.
As founder of Ontario Waterway Cruises Inc., Lloyd spearheaded the development of the business through the 80s and although he and Helen fully retired in 1993, he continued to observe and offer his advice as the years went by. Dad passed on in 2011 but he will always be remembered for his personal interest, enthusiasm and attention to detail… a remedy for success that he instilled in us and everyone he worked with.
