The North Channel has been touted time and again as the finest cruising waters not only of the Great Lakes but of the world, and for good reason; the channel’s clear blue waters, scenic coves and picturesque anchorages keep boaters coming back year after year. 

If you’re looking to become the stuff of fishing legend, Manitoulin Island is the place to be. Boasting some of the best sportfishing on the Great Lakes, anglers can land lunkers of almost every freshwater species—like salmon, trout, walleye, muskie, pike, whitefish, bass, perch and more.

With scenic views at every corner, backroads that beckon and no big city traffic, Manitoulin Island is the ideal place to bring your bike and get exploring. 

It is often said that islands attract creative people and Manitoulin is no exception. Almost every Island community has at least one gallery with offerings from painting, carvings, sculptures, jewellery, photography and everything in between. 

Lace up your boots, stretch your legs and go for a hike. Manitoulin is part of the Niagara Escarpment and as such offers many fine hiking trails. Ranging from easy and family-friendly to something a little more adventurous, Manitoulin’s trails have got you covered. 

If you’re a golfer, by all means pack your clubs and come to Manitoulin. The Island is home to three golf courses, two of which are nine hole and one 18-hole green.

For an island of its size, Manitoulin is fortunate to have three theatre groups offering mainstage productions during the summer months. 

Manitoulin Island is steeped in rich history and its museums are a reflection of this. From the Sheguiandah Museum, which highlights the region as a hub of First Nations activity nearly 10,000 years ago, to Manitowaning and some of Manitoulin’s settlers.
