Twice the Lockage for the Price of One

Early Bird Offer for Purchases of Passes

Once again this season, avid boaters can continue to take advantage of Parks Canada’s early bird specials.  Until March 31, boaters will receive 10% off mooring with the purchase of a seasonal lockage & mooring package ($1 off per foot) or one free night of mooring with the purchase of a 6-day permit!

Parks Canada is proud of the unique boating experiences that Ontario has to offer. These promotional efforts are intended to encourage new and continued use of our beautiful waterways. Our valued partners in boating are invited to participate in these efforts by communicating them at every occasion to further expose Canadians and visitors to the many opportunities available on the Historic Canals and in all of Ontario.

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. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
