There are a number of communities on the Canadian side of the lake. Sarnia, Grand Bend, Bayfield, Goderich, Kincardine all worth a visit on your way to Tobermory.
In my 36 years in Ontario I have yet to see a rattler outside the zoo.

Ports guide is a great resource for anyone heading up there. Some of those aerial photos are awesome for getting into some anchorages.

Actually, my kids have seen several on Beauoliel Island, ( Honey Harbour /Midland area) at the YMCA camp they go to, and the snakes were not captive.



xort..... you've got it right, we went to the North Channel last summer and would not reccomend anyone else to go there..... stay away !!!!

Scottbr and Xort,
Loved your posts. The North Channel is a miserable place and should be avoided by all. The friendliness is intrusive, the scenery is repetitious and the quiet is annoying. Fortunately, it is miles from anywhere and is hard to get to.

Looks like a great day scottbr. Here is about as nice a day as you will get at one of my favourite anchorages in the North Channel. The little sprinkles of rain can sometime deter the timid.
