Muskoka’s Port Carling, The Skyline from the Waters Edge

Cruising down the Indian River from Lake Rosseau you will eventually find the Town of Port Carling. This area is considered the hub of the Muskoka lakes. By navigating through the lock you are able to get into Lake Muskoka from here.

There are some very interesting buildings here especially the Port Carling Boat Works which was established in 1925. During the depression this company sold the most stock production of outboard motors in all of Canada. They built their beautiful Seabird launches from this location and a branch plant down in Honey Harbour, Ontario.

    I enjoy seeing the spots from the water, great photo…I’ve never been on any of these waterways…

  2. Heather If you get a chance you should take one of the Steamship tours out of Gravenhurst or even one of the smaller boat tours available around the lakes. It will give you a fresh perspective of the sites from the waters edge
