Cruising The North Channel

by Mike Gridley, PowerBoat Television

“While visiting the North Channel for a weekend getaway, I was stopped in my tracks; mesmerized by the stunning natural beauty of the rugged shorelines, the pure blue waters and the majestic bald eagle flying overhead.  Everywhere I looked there were signs of the native culture and history of the area.  The North Channel is truly a boater’s paradise”! 
- Kathy Edwards

Test Stretching approximately 160 nautical miles from Sault Ste. Marie to Killarney, the North Channel features a vast number of uninhabited islands with sheltered anchorages, a natural fjord and the world’s largest freshwater island – Manitoulin Island. 
Recognized as one of the ‘best freshwater cruising grounds in the world’, the North Channel offers boaters plenty of opportunity whether venturing on a day trip, a week vacation or a month long stay. Full service marinas welcome boaters to the North Channel and the many picturesque towns provide visitors with all the amenities. The North Channel and its communities invite you to enjoy the peaceful waters and on shore, dining, shopping, festivals, museums, theatre and much more.
