THIS COST IS NON-REFUNDABLE AFTER SUNDAY, JULY 8 BECAUSE I ALREADY PURCHASED THE TICKETS FOR THE WHOLE GROUP.

Please join me for a fun daytrip to Georgian Bay Islands National Park to hike,explore and have a dip. We will drive to Honey Harbour, have a picnic lunch and take a Day Tripper to the Beausoleil Island's northern shore.

At 5:30 pm, we take the Day Tripper again to return to Honey Harbour and drive to Barrie for dinner/snacks and fresh tasty cold beer at a popular local craft brewery.
