his stunning documentary invites viewers onboard a sailboat for a 34-kilometre voyage along the clear turquoise waters of Georgian Bay, ON, framed by the soaring limestone cliffs of the north Bruce Peninsula. Along the way, viewers will encounter some of the oldest cedar trees in Canada, white pebble beaches, the famous Grotto, the picturesque harbour town of Tobermory and some of the best-preserved shipwrecks in the world. It’s an adventure for the eyes and the spirit.
This documentary starts in the sheltered waters of Wingfield Basin at Cabot Head. The sailboat skims alongside one of the most unique landscapes in Ontario. The route has massive boulders strewn on its shores and a staggering Karst landscape with deep caves and tunnels carved by weather. Swimmers and sunbathers gather at the famous Grotto where visitors can access this unique area through Bruce Peninsula National Park. Slowly, the calm beaches of Dunks Bay give way to the old fishing harbour of Tobermory, where Canada’s most-visited shipwreck can be seen just below the waterline. Sailing away from the mainland, the trip ends at Flowerpot Island and its famous sea stacks.
Animated sequences bring to life some of the hair-raising stories of the 19th century shipping disasters in the area. Viewers learn how these brave crews were wrecked in storms. Then they explore the well-preserved shipwrecks underwater. Numerous factoids throughout the journey enrich the three-hour experience for anyone who is new to, or already familiar with, the Bruce Peninsula which divides Lake Huron from Georgian Bay.
