THINGS TO DO IN THE AREA

GEORGIAN BAY BIOSPHERE RESERVE

 

Spanning 347,000 protected hectares from Port Severn to the French River, the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve (GBBR) is an international eco model of open water, sheltered bays, islands, coastal wetlands, bedrock shores, sand and cobble beaches, lush foliage and forests. Integrating protected areas (provincial and national parks) with surrounding buffer zones (Crown Lands) and communities that support sustainable development, the Biosphere is home to more than 1,000 distinct, often rare, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and plants including Eastern Wolves and Foxes, Snapping Turtles, Eagles, Warblers and Butterflies.

 

ISLAND QUEEN CRUISE

 

The natural beauty of Georgian Bay can be enjoyed from this somewhat touristy 550-passenger ship designed with a shallow draft that allows for navigating narrow channels and shallow island shorelines. Guided narration, comfortable indoor seating, panoramic viewing windows, al fresco observation decks, and an on-board café enhance the splendid views. June 1st to mid-October (Thanksgiving Monday).
