The 30,000 Islands make northeast Georgian Bay a kayaker’s paradise. From a few square meters to several square kilometers, these granite islands form a protective maze for the paddler to explore. Away from the sheltered channels, there are also open bays and crossings to distant islands for the experienced paddler. There is very little soil in this area, and most of the vegetation on the coastline consists of wind-twisted and gnarled trees that are far older than they look. It’s a harsh and fragile environment – the least-settled wilderness on the great bay.
Our 7-day trip begins with a short skills clinic and several hours of paddling down a sheltered river to the wilderness of the bay. We’ll camp on deserted islands and enjoy great food, spectacular sunsets, and new friends. There will be lazy days, and as our confidence grows, the challenge of open-water crossings and big waves. Finally, passing to the south of the quartz hills of Killarney Provincial Park, we’ll reach the journey’s end at the quaint fishing village of Killarney.
