Georgian Bay
Open water for cruising, a huge archipelago to explore, one of the world's longest sand beaches,

Georgian Bay

From the longest freshwater beach in the world, past more than 30,000 islands to the limestone flowerpots at Tobermory, Georgian Bay offers many different personalities.   You can set sail to the horizon; the largest fresh water bay in the world has open water.  This bay is almost as large as Lake Ontario.  You can catch salmon and rainbow trout, pickerel and bass; gunkhole among the craggy islands; bask in the lee of the Niagara Escarpment or explore sunken ships in crystal water.  Along the shore there are towns and history to discover, with cozy harbours and all the services you need.

Bruce Peninsula North

As glaciers from the last Ice Age retreated 16000 years ago (give or take a millennium!) a huge plate of land tipped up to create a great curving limestone cliff from Niagara Falls to Manitoulin Island.  The Bruce Peninsula that lies between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay is part of this Niagara Escarpment – a World Biosphere Reserve.  At its northern tip, Tobermory, the Escarpment seems to end but rises again in the world’s largest freshwater island, Manitoulin.  Explore the towns along peninsula’s eastern shore, dive in the underwater provincial park at its tip off Tobermory, enjoy all this extraordinary WaterWay has to offer.
