About me

I’m Douglas Hunter, and I have lived on southeastern Georgian Bay, an arm of Lake Huron, for almost 25 years. I have cruised eastern Georgian Bay, the fabled 30,000 Islands region, from my home base on Severn Sound to the French and Bad River outlets at the north end of the bay. My wife Deb and I day-sail and cruise in a C&C 27, Diva, based at Midland Bay Sailing Club. I’m a writer and artist, and have been covering issues of interest to those who treasure the wild Great Lakes for decades. If you want to know more about my work, visit douglashunter.ca. Here on Wild Great Lakes, I’m blogging about issues and events specific to the Great Lakes wilderness experience, which will be of interest to cruising boaters, kayakers, canoeists, campers, anglers, cottagers, hikers, and whoever else values these waters and coastlines. My main focus is on Canada, but posts wander across the border from time to time.
