The Killarney area on Georgian Bay offers some of the most scenic sea kayaking in eastern Canada. Hundreds of windswept islands dot the coast from Killarney down to Parry Sound. Rugged rock formations produce narrow channels of pristine blue water against a background of rugged white mountains. The landscape offers a wealth of natural treasures including Ontario's best sunsets. Sea kayaks are ideal for Georgian Bay. They allow us to handle large waves as well as being shallow enough to permit paddling through rocky shoals.
Accommodation for the four nights is camping accommodation. Group size is limited to eight guests and a guide who prepares delicious meals allowing you to put your feet up at the end of the day.
We rendezvous at 8:30am for breakfast at Killarney. After breakfast, we load our packs and paddle out into "the Bay". Along the way we learn how to sea kayak, paddle safely and have loads of time to swim in the clean freshwater. Our first destination of the trip is the Fox Islands where we will make camp on one of its rocky outcrops.
Day 2 - 5
For the next four days we paddle through Georgian Bay exploring Phillip Edward Island, the Chicken Islands and Collins Inlet. Our pace is relaxed with lots of time for swimming, hiking and exploring nearby islands. Georgian Bay offers unforgettable sunsets. Accommodation is in a variety of campsites, with a route designed by the guide for your group. The main focus of the trip is not covering set distances but enjoying the beauty of Georgian Bay and having a full and rewarding wilderness experience.
We arrive in Killarney for a hike up the La Cloche Mountains to have one final look out into the blue waters of Georgian Bay before departure.
