"As a port, our mission at Moon River Marine is to provide the assurance of safe passage

by storing and maintaining our guests' boats in the most professional manner."


Thank you from the friends of the Massassauga Provincial Park for donating the life jacket, horn, and fire extinguishers to the Music in the Mass fundraiser. They were bid on by many people and hopefully provide reinforcement of the commitment of Moon River Marine to the local community.

My husband and I stayed at Moon Bay Lodge last week and just got home. 

We used Moon River Marine to park our car and for water taxis (3 trips total). We really had a wonderful experience! We found the marina easy to find and very well stocked with snacks, supplies, and goodies! Jack drove our water taxi each time we came and went from the island where we stayed. He was super friendly and a fantastic boat driver (his landings are amazing!). We had a great experience and wouldn't hesitate to use Moon River Marina in the future! Thanks so much!

Having spent 10 years based out of Moon River Marine, a thank you from the Taylor family is long overdue. Thanks to all the staff in service, storage and sales for exceeding our expectations at every turn and living up to your mission statement. Moon River Marine, is truly the premier gateway to Wood's Bay, Moon River, Sans Souci,  and, of course, the Massassauga Park. With the continual improvements in both the physical facility and guest services, we look forward to returning each year!

We want to thank everyone at the Moon River Marina for making our holiday this past two weeks very enjoyable. Over our many years of sailing we have had the opportunity to launch from many different marinas, but never had the care and attention that we received at Moon River. We want to especially thank Jack for all his help loading and unloading our boat. He is a wonderful young man and a credit to your marina. The Listers will be spreading the word that if you need to launch near the Massasauga Park, Moon River Marine is the place to go. Thank you again.

Spring hasn’t quite sprung on Georgian Bay, but we wanted to reach out and let you know about a few things happening here on Wood’s Bay. 

The great news: 

When you arrive later this spring you will see a new and improved Moon River Marine. 

The not as great news: 

The marina will remain closed until May 1stin order to complete these projects. 

This past year we have all seen unprecedented change and we want to ensure the marina is a safe and healthy place for our staff and customers. As such we are implementing a number of improvements throughout the marina including: upgrades to facilities in the wake of COVID; construction of new docks and existing dock maintenance; and strategic building renovations. 

In order to complete these projects we need to have unfettered access to all docks and buildings which means the marina property will remain closed until May 1st. Boats will begin going in the water on April 20th. We ask that you please avoid calling the marina prior to May 1st and instead email us at: This will enable us to focus on completing our projects on time! 

After May 1st you will receive your dockage billing for the summer season (May 1st to October 31st). In the meantime please see the enclosed price list for 2021. You’ll notice we have implemented a small increase to some fees to bring them in line with industry standards. Additionally a new storage/slip contract must be signed prior to season start. 

Again if you have any questions related to your upcoming summer billing please send an email to the address above. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make your marina the best it can be. 

All the best, 

Chris Holmes

Your Gateway to Georgian Bay
