This guide contains information on paddling Panmure Island and St. Mary’s Bay & Graham Pond. St. Mary’s Bay offers outstanding canoe sailing because of its sheltered water and reaps the benefits of stiff breezes from Cardigan Bay to the west and the open water of the Northumberland Strait to the east. The wind is brisk,but the chop is slight. I sailed there for several hours, and at times I strained to keep my rudder pointed because of the swiftness of my track. The wind was so brisk that I nearly planed my canoe. Panmure Island, named by Samuel Holland in 1765 for the Earl of Panmure, looms majestically to the north. Paddling along the shores in any direction nurtures the feeling that you are in a vast, flat water-prairie of western Canada. There are many intriguing photographic opportunities of twisted windswept trees and weathered gray shacks. To get an authentic feel for commercial fishing on the Island, visit the wharf on Graham Pond. Here you will see several dozen weather-beaten fishing sheds, a wharf, and a fleet of fishing boats. Plan to hang around the wharf before or after your paddle to capture the flavor and be ready to photograph. currently offers topo maps from the entire United States.
