Ports

Parry Sound is a small town at the Georgian Bay of Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada. You will find beautiful nature parks in the area, such as the Killbear Provincial Park or the Massasauga Provincial Park; there is also a hiking trail which leads to the Waubuno Beach. For amazing views, climb up to the Museum on Tower Hill and if you're a hockey fan, you must visit the Bobby Orr Hall Of Fame.

Collingwood is a city on the Georgian Bay in Canadian province of Ontario. It was named after Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood, Lord Nelson’s second in command. Most of Collingwood's attractions revolve around the beautiful nature surrounding it. Visit the Sunset Point Park to, well, watch the sun set, or rent a bike for a tour of the Georgian Trail. There's also a Collingwood Museum in a charming restored railway station.
