Fly-in Fishing Getaway Package
From City, to the Wilderness and back again! Enjoy this 2 night Fly-in Fishing retreat in Parry Sound. Arrive in Parry Sound and settle into your room at Bayside Inn for a relaxing evening. You can stroll the waterfront in Parry Sound, or hit the sack early to be ready for your day of fishing. Set the alarm, because you won’t want to be late for your 7am departure! But don’t worry, it’s only a 1 minute walk from the Inn to the seaplane base. Grab your fishing gear, and head down to GBA to start your day. At the base, we’ll have a lunch packed and bottled water, so you just need your sunscreen, tackle and bait for a perfect day.

After dinner you can head for a stroll along the fitness trail, catch at show at the Stockey Centre or Strand Twin Theatre or just relax at the Inn.
