Paddle the crystal clear waters of the Fishing Islands, an archipelago of over 70 islands, off the west coast of the spectacular Bruce Peninsula. Rich in history, with shipwrecks and the remains of a fishing station from the mid-1800s, these islands provide shallow warm waters to explore interesting geology and nesting colonies of gulls, terns, cormorants, herons, and even a pair of bald eagles.
Start your journey at the beach in Howdenvale and explore the northern islands, or put in at Oliphant Beach and discover the larger southern islands. Observe bird colonies; scout the ruins of the Main Station Island Fishing Station; and travel over the Gold Hunter and Sarah shipwrecks.
Behind the shelter provided by the Fishing Islands, kayakers are treated to calm and shallow waters warm enough for a refreshing dip. This group of islands is home to a fascinating variety of plant and animal life that changes with the rise and fall of Lake Huron water levels.
Be sure to bring your binoculars to explore the sights of this great natural region.
