James Bay Map

James Bay: Moosonee, Ontario

To fulfill my desire to see the great Hudson Bay in far northern Canada, I inquired at various tourist bureaus in Ontario, Quebec, and finally Monitoba. (For those of you who don't know it, Monitoba is considered to have an ocean port, on the Atlantic no less - via Hudson Bay. Who would have thought?)

In Ontario, I was able to reach the southern tip of James Bay which is the southern part of Hudson Bay. Not good enough to satisfiey my desire but well worth seeing. I took the Polar Bear Express train to Moosonee. From Moosonee I took a water taxi to Moose Factory. I still wasn't satisfied so later in my travels, I continued to inquire as to how to get to Hudson Bay.
