Across the Strait as seen while relaxing on the deck in your hot tub, is beautiful Discovery Bay, the scene of the Naval Establishment founded during the War of 1812-1814.
Kings Wharf Theatre
On the shores of Georgian Bay in Penetanguishene is Discovery Bay, the location of a 19th Century British naval and military base. Follow a beautiful boardwalk past replica ships H.M.S. Bee and H.M.S. Tecumseth to the Kings Wharf Theatre, a pleasantly rustic, 385-seat venue that offers all the comforts of a modern facility. We have enjoyed many excellent performances here, but it is also an excellent place for a water-side stroll, or a meal or beverage at “Captain Robert’s Table.”

Boating on Georgian Bay
