Yup, get north of Cape Caution and things thin out quickly

Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

Rare to see another boat on the Big Sur coast of California or further north of San Francisco called "The Lost Coast", no roads on the land there even. However these are not places anyone hangs around much, no shelter, everyone's "just passing thru".

Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

Northern reaches of Green Bay on Lake Michigan can be very remote and lightly cruised.
Big Bay and Little Bay De Noc with the ports of Escanaba and especially Fayette are the most remote places we have visited.

Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

I also suggest the North Channel of Lake Huron. Seasonally, there are times you will see almost no one. This place is rated one of the top ten cruise destinations on the planet. There are also places 'white' on the charts where there are no soundings for hundreds of square miles. Venture in here slowly & carefully. If your draft is shallow there are thousands of islands and anchorages here. Good fishing too.

Also, All of Lake Superior, especially the Apostle Islands and the Canadian side. Be sure to cruise the Pictured Rocks National sea shore (south side west of Munising). There is a seasonal bonanza fishing on Stannard Rock in the middle of Superior when large lake trout can be caught in 20 foot deep shoals with light tackle - if the hatch is on. Go to Isle Royal and camp/hike with the moose.

There are many places to get lost in the islands between Mackinaw and Drumond around Government Bay.

Check out the North end of Georgian Bay East of the North Channel. You will need Canadian Hydro graphic charts.

Since Canada is in the mix.

Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

You looking for "navigable water" to sail TO, or can you trailer? Like the MacGregor ads say - I can get to my favorite sailing spots at 55mph. Mountain lakes on a weekday off season?

That was quite some time ago, Tim - 2000, or 2001, if memory serves...

I smartened up over subsequent winters, there's still plenty of isolation to be found down south, as well :-)
