South Benjamin Island

The North Channel of Georgian Bay, which hugs the northern edge of Lake Huron, has long been a favourite of those who appreciate the finest in freshwater cruising and all it offers.

The North Channel of Georgian Bay, which hugs the northern edge of Lake Huron, has long been a favourite of those who appreciate the finest in freshwater cruising and all it offers. The channel stretches approximately 160 nautical miles from Michigan’s Sault Ste. Marie to Killarney, Ontario. Toward the channel’s eastern end is South Benjamin Island, safely tucked between mainland Canada and Manitoulin Island, the world’s largest freshwater island.

Even from a distance, boaters will recognize South Benjamin Island’s signature pink granite, gracefully jutting out of the water like a gemstone waiting for its setting. Declared a “National Beauty Spot” and a popular anchorage destination for boaters, the Benjamin Islands are most easily approached by boat from the southeast side through Clapperton Island Passage, or from the Northwest via the Spanish, Ontario marina. This 5 acre parcel with approximately 1,500 feet of frontage is the only private land on North and South Benjamin Islands, and is located in the most beautiful part of South Benjamin Island’s incredible landscape, with much of this frontage providing sheltered coves for docking.

Currently, a private cottage, dock and support buildings provide a comfortable foundation for enjoying island life and there are endless possibilities for further development. Because it is outside of existing planning district controls and restrictions in unsurveyed territory (no building permits required), South Benjamin Island is perfect for the visionary seeking to create a wholly unique island retreat.

For outdoor enthusiasts, South Benjamin Island’s location is perfect for day trips to experience the region. Hiking and exploration opportunities abound at many of the 30,000 islands that dot the channel, while larger port towns such as Little Current to the east and Blind River to the west offer restaurants and shopping.

With so many routes to explore, South Benjamin Island is full of potential, while its uninhabited location – free from city lights – makes it the ideal spot for stargazing and viewing the northern lights. Most who cruise the North Channel only experience these coveted islands in passing, but ownership ensures these heavenly views for a lifetime.
