Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) April 5, 2010
First Page SEO™ (http://www.first-page-seo.com), an award-winning, Ontario based web marketing company, announces the launch of their new comprehensive Georgian Bay Region yacht directory web site. Boating Georgian Bay (http://www.BoatingGeorgianBay.com) will be a one stop resource for all things Georgian Bay and contain invaluable information, tips, reviews and guides for Georgian Bay area boaters and for visiting yachtsman from around the world.
Georgian Bay's 30,000 Islands and the North Channel boating region is considered to be one of the top cruising destinations for yachts in the world. Rated up with the Caribbean Islands and the Greek Isles, Georgian Bay attracts yachts from the Great lakes, Atlantic seaboard and European boats visiting North America's Great Lakes region. To be sure, the yachting season is short in this region with the peak season running mid-June to mid-September. December to April, the 30,000 Island area and North Channel are covered with ice. But, during the warm summer season, the cruising and secluded anchorages are breathtaking, with hundreds of sheltered harbours, protected inlets and fiords with towering pink granite rock islands, dotted with windswept pines that exemplify remote Canadian wilderness cruising. To compliment the remote and secluded harbours, there are many ports of call, towns, villages and cities that offer safe docking, provisioning, marine services, great restaurant and each port has its own unique history and nautical character.
First Page SEO became aware that this important yachting destination tourism region was under represented, with no comprehensive online directory of boating resources for local boats and visiting yachts arriving from other far flung regions. "There are bits and pieces on the web regarding yacht tourism in the area but no directory that covered all the bases from weather, marina facilities and services to ports of call, restaurants and local history," says Mark Coles, the owner of First Page SEO. "We were surprised that given the stature of the 30,000 Islands and North Channel in the global yachting community as being one of the top few cruising destinations in the world, that there was so little information available as a resource for boaters visiting as tourists," adds Coles.
Boating Georgian Bay (http://www.BoatingGeorgianBay.com) covers everything boaters visiting the area might be interested in, including things like shipwreck dive sites, favorite anchorages, marina details, fuel locations, port history and provisioning, marine and individual port weather, biology of the area and loads of other information that is really useful to those planning to cruise in the area for a season or as a permanent home for their boat.
For larger yachts, over 60 feet on up to over 150 feet, many tend to come to the area for the summer and then head back down south via lake Huron, Lake St Clair, Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and down the Erie barge canal and the Hudson River to Lauderdale, Miami and the Caribbean, to winter in warmer climes. Smaller yachts have several other ways to go to or from the Georgia Bay region. A very scenic way is to come from Lake Ontario is via the Trent Severn Canal lock system which runs through Ontario's prime cottage country, via a well-maintained series of locks and with many interesting towns and stops along the away. The trip known as The Great Loop includes the Trent to Georgian Bay and back down Lake Michigan to Chicago with transit down the Mississippi River, around Florida and back up the eastern seaboard to New York, travelling back to Lake Ontario via the Hudson River and the Erie Barge Canal. This is a trip of a lifetime for serious cruisers. The less adventurous can charter yachts right in the 30, 000 Islands and North Channel. "The North Channel is one of the most beautiful places to boat in the world. Having sailed the eastern seaboard, Chesapeake Bay and the Caribbean, it is hard to find anything to compare on the same level for cruising. The downside is that the season is short and navigation can be tricky and demanding in many of the remote island chains and islets," says Coles.
Boating Georgian Bay online directory offers some spectacular photography and is kept up to date with the latest new and events pertaining to the area, including a Twitter feed for boaters and boat related services in the Georgian Bay region.
