About Frenchman's Bay
Frenchman’s Bay lies on the north shore of Lake Ontario about 20 miles North East of Toronto or approximately Latitude 43° 48.53’ North and Longitude 79° 04.59’ West.
Announcing Our New Harbour Entrance!
The new harbor entrance opened in June 2015. Three levels of government (federal, provincial and municipal) invested $9 million in the construction of new channel walls, walkway and a deeper entranceway. This entrance has increased the channel width from 50’ to 98.5’ (30 metres) wide and extended the channel entrance length from 400’ to 900’ (300 metres) into Lake Ontario. The channel depth is now at least 11 feet (3.35 metres).
The usual navigation season is from mid April to the end of October. Ice generally begins to form in places on the bay in early December.
The Toronto Weatheradio Canada Station broadcasts marine weather reports continuously on 162.475 MHz (VHF Channel W3).
