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.
