Meldrum Bay is located at the western-most tip of Manitoulin Island. As you arrive at
the village by road you’ll round the last curve in Highway 540 and catch
your first glimpse of the waters of the Bay and the sailboats,
yachts and fishing boats moored at the docks.
Boaters recognize Meldrum Bay
as the first Canada Customs port for those traveling east from
Michigan and American ports beyond.
If you are coming by air,
the Island is serviced by two small airports (in Gore Bay and
south of Little Current), and float planes are known to land right
in the waters of Meldrum Bay.
The coordinates of the marina are 45° 55' 32.96" N 83° 06' 50.19" W Elevation 177m.
Travel by Car:
On land, Meldrum Bay and the Marina can be reached by following Highway 6 from Espanola to Little Current, then Highway 540 following the north shore of the Island to Meldrum Bay.
