Nature Trails near South Baymouth, Ontario

Welcome to South Baymouth!

Each year South Baymouth welcomes to Manitoulin Island thousands of visitors, who travel daily on the ferry Chi-Cheemaun. Regular ferry service between Tobermory and Manitoulin Island was introduced in 1932.

The Island's early inhabitants named this community Sagradawawong, "The Outlet", which like its present English name, identifies the precise location at the very mouth of south Bay.
The history of South Baymouth is of necessity bound up with the history of fishing along the south shore of Manitoulin. The original settlers moved from a finy fishing station at Walker's Point (mid-way to Michael's Bay), building their homes in the late 1870's at the "Mouth".
