Between Shebeshekong Bay and the main body of Georgian Bay, the pristine waters of the lake weave through a labyrinth of inlets, channels, and waterways flowing between hundreds of islands ringed with pink-grey granite shorelines and forested with windswept pines. Ranging from tiny unnamed isles to the larger Narrows Island and Franklin Island, the islands form part of the bay's Thirty Thousand Islands, which represent the largest freshwater archipelago in the entire world and constitute the UNESCO-designated Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve.
