For the first time since 2020, boaters and outdoor water enthusiasts will be able to attend the Toronto Boat Show to see, touch, board, and speak to more than 450 exhibitors to get ready for the upcoming season ahead.  Hundreds of boats of all sizes and lifestyles will be available to purchase and pre-order from fishing dinghies to family pontoons, sailboats to inflatable boats, powerboats and wake boats – and plenty of paddleboards, kayaks, canoes and inflatables.  
 
And hot off the heels of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the newest technology in electric boats will be making a big splash at the 2023 Toronto Boat Show with more sustainable alternatives by way of boats, motors, and solar-powered accessories than ever before.  
 

Kicking off the return of the Boat Show will be First Look Friday on January 20, a preview opportunity for the boating community to come together NEW this year, the Toronto Boat Show will feature a Boaters Resource Centre.  Various boating authorities and recreational organizations including Parks Canada, Canadian Power and Sail Squadron, Transport Canada, and Boating Ontario to name a few, will be on hand to provide unbiased answers and information to empower safe boating, confidence, and preparation to get out on the water and discover the boating lifestyle.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge.
