However, not all sailboats can navigate this rock-strewn harbor, particularly from the western side, which has limited draft channels. From the well-equipped Prince Albert Marina in Thunder Bay you can head southward on Thunder Bay, then voyage eastward past the Sibley Peninsula and Sleeping Giant Mountain.

You can then work your way westward, ending up at Thunder Bay.
