Theodore the Tugboat is coming to Sarnia-Lambton

Tourism Sarnia-Lambton is excited to announce that the beloved replica of the cartoon character, Theodore TOO, is making its way to Sarnia-Lambton. Built and established in Nova Scotia in 2000, this fully functioning replica left its home harbour on June 10th and has been travelling throughout the Great Lakes.

Tourism Sarnia-Lambton will be welcoming Theodore TOO to three different stops in Sarnia-Lambton.


August 26 – 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Mooretown Dock

August 28-31– 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sarnia Centennial Park

September 2- 3rd – 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Mooretown Dock

Tourism Sarnia-Lambton will also be promoting Theodores visit throughout the region, encouraging families to come visit Sarnia-Lambton, stay a few days and explore our attractions, waterfront, beaches and of course Theodore the Tugboat!

This initiative in part has been made possible by the Village of Point Edward and the Pont Edward Hotel MAT funds.

As part of Tourism Sarnia-Lambton’s partnership with the Village of Point Edward and the Hotels, TSL will be promoting a “$25 off an overnight stay Theodore Voucher” that can be used between August 26th and September 3rd for guests staying at Point Edward Hotels. ** No third party bookings. Please book your stay directly with participating hotels to redeem promotional pricing**

At each port, Theodore will connect with members of the community and provide a fun and energetic atmosphere for families of all ages to enjoy. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, on boarding tours of the boat are unfortunately not permitted, but everyone will have the opportunity to get their pictures taken with this iconic former television star. All other Covid-19 measures and protocols will also be in place to ensure the safety of the public.

Theodore TOO’s expedition aims to emphasize the importance of maintaining, preserving, and restoring Canadian bodies of water. In partnership with the non-profit organization Swim, Drink, Fish, the collective goal is to educate individuals on the importance of taking care of our local bodies of water. Canadians are fortunate to enjoy over 20% of the world’s fresh water, creating the large responsibility of keeping it swimmable, drinkable and fishable.

“As part of his sustainability efforts in collaboration with Swim Drink Fish, Theodore TOO hopes to collect 100,000 watermarks over the next year,” said Natasha Mackow, Theodore’s Chief Experience Officer

“Members of the public can take part in the watermark project designed to collect personal stories of people on their local waterways and we look forward to hearing from Sarnia-Lambton residents. This crowd-sourced initiative, THEODORE TOO Watermarks allows individuals to help researchers identify waters where people swim, drink, or fish, so that those uses can be protected in the future while building a legacy of connecting Canadians to the water.”
