For the entire August long weekend, Friday July 31 to Monday, August 3, five participating Ontario marinas – Bay Port, Beacon Bay, Paragon Marina, South Bay Cove and Wye Heritage  – donated ten cents for every litre of fuel sold to the Georgian Bay General Hospital Foundation.

By the end of the weekend, the five had almost achieved 100,000 litres and would have if Mother Nature hadn’t rained on the parade. Nonetheless, the final tally showed that the fundraiser of $8,593 from 85,593 litres of fuel surpassed its $10,000 goal helped by a $600 donation from an anonymous boater and a further $1,407 from Dave Rozycki, President of Maple Leaf Marinas.

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

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. 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!
