Terrific service. The staff at the marina are very helpful and fast at the launching service. Would recommend them to anyone. It was a pleasure to be able to leave your vehicle & trailer in a secure location at the marina.

Amazing I've been coming here since I was a baby and the staff at Hartley Bay Marina are always fantastic! It feels like coming home every time. The French River is the best place to catch fish and relax - a must visit!

We used Hartley Bay Marina as our start and end points for a four day low French River canoe trip over the 2015 May long weekend. The staff were superb. Very friendly people showed us where to park while we unloaded our gear and then took our car and parked it for us...

the place to launch a canoe or kayak trip from french river to georgian bay This was my 4th French River excursion but the first time I had launched a kayak trip from the French River to Georgian Bay using Hartley Bay Marina as the launch site. Clean, efficient and very helpful staff assisted the two of us, helped us on the navigation, parked our cars and made us feel very comfortable. The staff was courteous.

Fishing partner and I decided to venture into new Ontario waters at The French River (#French River) bass, walleye & pike fishing. We found Hartley Bay Marina cottages. And yes this marina has valet parking… Camping, Fishing, Canoe / Kayak, Guided Tours, Boat Rentals. Give Hartley Bay Marina a chance. I am sure you will not regret the trip.

Named as Canada’s first heritage waterway in 1986, the French River has played host to many a travellers. As we Celebrate 400 years since discovery, by French Explorer, Samuel de Champlain, its shorelines and waterways continue to tell tales of the Voyageurs, who travelled along in their birch bark canoes, as the French River was a vital link to the West during the Fur trade era, and of Copenanning, now known as one of Ontario’s Ghost towns, a village that was created when the Lumber industry inhabited these waters. Overtime the scenic vistas of the French River and the Georgian Bay have remained relatively unspoiled and mostly unchanged and, for the last century, fishing and tourism are what now draw visitors to the area. But the many ruins, relics and artifacts that can still be found along the shorelines, beneath the surface of the waterways and along its famed portage routes, remind us of the incredible history these banks have seen.
