Are you a sail or power boater that lives in the Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada area or are you just visiting Georgian Bay and want to know about our boating?
The Georgian Bay Boating app gives you all the information you need to enjoy the water.
We provide a list of sailing clubs, marinas, part suppliers, repair shops and weather conditions so that you can enjoy that perfect day.
A new maps feature provides users with green pins indicating where landmarks/marinas are located in the Georgian Bay area.
User submitted obstructions and deadheads are marked in red.
As you approach a green or red pin, a message is displayed on your device giving you the option of viewing it's location on the map or to view more information such as historical information.
The community can suggest landmarks to be added using the 'contact us' tab of the app
Users can submit deadheads or obstructions they find in the water that are not mapped. A deadhead is a log or obstruction in the water which could be dangerous for boaters. When you find a deadhead in the water, send us the Longitude and Latitude using the 'Contact Us' feature.
When boaters pass within 100 feet of the dead head, a message from the app will appear warning them of it's presence and their current distance from the object. Boating safe matters for everyone.
Follow our 'Living The Life' blogger Craig Bowman from 'Cruising Off Duty', to see what it's like to live a life onboard a boat as he moves towards leaving land for good. Very informative and always changing.
