Although there are different anecdotes about Gananoque Boat Line’s early history, the first cruise operator in Gananoque was a local letter carrier who delivered mail to islanders and took passengers to complement his mail delivery activities. In 1951, three local men founded Gananoque Boat Line with the Linda 7, a wooden cruise ship that could carry 55 passengers. A few years later, they added the Linda 4, the Miss Rockport 2, the Island Wanderer and the Pickle—all of which are single-deck wooden vessels. In the 1960s, the Miss Gananoque I and the Miss Gananoque II joined Gananoque Boat Line’s fleet.
