Anyone know where "The Pool" is?

The pool probably refers to the pool at the end of Baie Fine in the North Channel above Manitoulin.
It's considered one of the best cruising spots in the world by many. It's certainly pretty there. It's at the end of a true North American Fjord.

I was thinking it was at the end of Baie Fine too (I've been there, and it is awesome!), but others seem to point to where you found Matt.

Just pondering possible travels this summer.

I stand corrected The Pool I referred to is referenced on hiking trails. Your boat probablly won't fit.

The Pool at the foot of Baie Fine. View is looking north east from the hills that line the shores of the Second Narrows. The Actual Pool anchorage area is the bowl shaped bay lined by rugged rocky and wooded hills, visible to the right of the frame.

Now I want to go there.

Have lots of info including charts, images, and video. Made some memorable trips in a SeaRay 330 Sundancer

I was hoping you would chime in. I've looked at a lot of your travels. Excellent job documenting it all!

Also, my favorite photo of our boat to date, is actually your photo of your boat!

I've been to the Pool about 6 or 7 times, and boated in the region at least 10 times. I've have waypoints, etc that I can share.
I have a photo of there too.

Those poor souls having to summer like that. That would suck!

I'd enjoy looking at whatever waypoints you have. I don't think I'd ever even heard of GPS when I was there.

VERY COOL!!!


Thanks for the waypoints. I'm impressed with your travels!



No problem. The route through the Benjamins is a little tricky the first time through, just go slow and pay attention to the rocks under the water. :)
