Georgian Bay is one of the premiere cruising areas of the Great Lakes. The cruising grounds range from sheltered passages and coves to the “big water” of the open bay. On Tuesday, March 31, at 8:00 PM Eastern/7:00 PM Central, you will discover some of the gems of Georgian Bay’s intricate east shore where wilderness anchorages are only hours away from the sophisticated facilities of marinas in southern Georgian Bay. Join past GLCC Commodore J.E. Fordyce as he leads an exploration of this pristine region in his webinar, Cruising Georgian Bay's 30,000 Islands.

Although Georgian Bay is within easy driving distance of Canada’s largest city and welcomes many cottagers and other land-based visitors each summer, it is still easy to find pristine and lightly used anchorages all along the east coast of the bay. These, combined with attractive towns, such as Parry Sound, Midland and Penetanguishene and smaller communities like Britt and Honey Harbour, make Georgian Bay a paradise for boaters. The cruising grounds range from sheltered passages and coves to the “big water” of the open bay, where the wise mariner will check the weather forecasts carefully before setting out.
