Boating Georgian Bay, a comprehensive guide to Georgian Bay Ontario boating, announces the launch of a new mobile application for boaters on the go, to compliment the main Georgian Bay boating directory.

Boating Georgian Bay (, a leading Ontario Canada boating site has announced the launch of a new mobile site to compliment their existing extensive boating site that receives over 5000 hits a day during the boating season. The launch of the new mobile site comes just in time for the 2012 boating season on Georgian Bay which is just starting up in May. The mobile site is built to be quick loading and will fit the screens of smart phone devices.

“We focused on three elements – weather, marina data and emergency contact information,” says Mark Coles, a senior partner in the web marketing company First Page SEO ( that also owns various tourist directories. The Weather Page includes Environment Canada specific Port forecasts, Georgian Bay weather warnings, marine forecasts, Midland Weather Underground, NOAA weather radar, wind & water temperatures, and Georgian Bay weather buoy information. The Marina Directory page has an up to date list of every marina on Georgian Bay and in the North Channel, and includes phone #, gas, diesel and pump out availability. The Boating Emergency page has all the contact info resources in the case of an emergency situation on the water as well as an education piece on what to do and what not to do.

“Many boaters now use smart phones on their boats and some even run chart programs on these devices. We wanted Georgian Bay boaters to have key information that is also featured on the full Boating Georgian Bay web site, without having to break out the laptop and data stick. It’s very handy to check the weather resources when everything is in one place or to call ahead to check marina dockage availability,” says Coles

Boating Georgian Bay’s Marina Directory is updated throughout the year, but every spring, data is confirmed by telephone with the hundreds of marinas around Georgian Bay and the North Channel to insure mariners are looking at the latest information including water depths in the marinas. “The advantage of online marine data is a big one. Printed guides typically are updated every few years and many changes happen in that kind of time frame. Online marina directories can be updated constantly on an ongoing basis and this is important when it comes to boating where many safety issues are at play,” adds Coles.
