Why travel to the Caribbean for your own private island when it is right here in Ontario. A separate bath house includes a composting toilet and sink on one side, and shower and sink on the other side. Water is treated and comes in both hot and cold. Canoe, two kayaks, Walker Bay dinghy for rowing/sailing and two SUP's (Stand Up Paddleboards) available at the island for customer use. Bring your own lifejackets. Additional photos can be sent to all interested parties. Add HST to cost plus parking/boat launch and or water taxi feesMore
