Welcome, Bienvenue, Boozhoo to the official tourism website of Georgian Bay, in Ontario, Canada.

Georgian Bay isn't just a big lake! It's an incomparable freshwater playground! Known for its famous windswept pines, plentiful fishing and endless sunny summer days on the water, it's no wonder that it has been a tourist destination for over 100 years.

Georgian Bay, the northeastern arm of Lake Huron, is one of the largest bodies of freshwater in the world, and is home to the longest freshwater beach and the largest freshwater archipelago in the world! At 9,321 square kilometers, it has earned itself the nickname of the sixth Great Lake.

Divided from the larger part of Lake Huron by the Niagara Escarpment and fed from Lake Superior and many rivers, the landscape surrounding this magnificent body of water is drastically different from one end to the other. Windswept pines, majestic towering cliffs, endless beaches and clear blue water all create a one of a kind destination.

Whether you are traveling by RV, motorcycle, or boat, you will find quaint towns, scenic vistas, and interesting tourist attractions along the way.
