What you'll do

Our private sailing adventure begins in Owen Sound Harbour (25 minutes from Sauble Beach, 40 minutes from the Blue Mountains, 1 hour and 20 minutes from Tobermory, and 2 hours from Toronto Pearson International Airport). Help us untie the cleats and cast off from the docks. We’ll wave goodbye to the marina lighthouse as we motor through the channel markers, where we will hoist our sails. With both the jib and the main sail raised, we will cut power to the engine. Now, only the sound of the waves lapping against the hull of the boat will interrupt the tranquility of our sunset. Sit back and relax with a glass of wine from Ontario's burgeoning wine country or a can of craft beer from our local brewery. With ample photo opportunities, Georgian Bay's beauty is unparalleled. We'll encounter windswept pines, majestic towering limestone cliffs, craggy beaches, and crystal-clear turquoise waters, together creating a one-of-a-kind private sailing experience. But more than just snapping countless iPhone photos, we’ll learn seamanship skills, including reading wind direction and adjusting point of sail, picking up various sailing terminology along the way. As we make our way back to shore, we'll present a locally sourced charcuterie board complete with artisanal meats and gourmet cheeses to satisfy all cravings!

Where you'll be

Onboard a 30-foot sailboat, we'll cruise the turquoise waters of Georgian Bay via Owen Sound Harbour, a long, narrow, and deep inlet of water cutting between the high cliffs of the 500-million-year-old Niagara Escarpment on either side.
