A crescent shaped bay defines this outdoor, non-denominational cathedral. On Sunday afternoons in July and August, guest preachers visit for an hour of inspiration and song. For over 100 years people have been coming by skiff, kayak and motor boat.

Situated on Bostwick Island in the Admiralty Group, Half Moon Bay is a natural bay of carved rock, compliments of the retreating glaciers. The tradition of worship in Half Moon Bay began in 1887. People come from neighboring islands and from Gananoque by boat to meet for a non-denominational Vesper Service early on Sunday evening during July and August.

What You'll See

Bostwick Island is in the south westerly part of the Admiralty Group. It is marked by a crescent moon sign. Canoes, skiffs, kayaks and mid-size cruisers all tuck in here and raft alongside each other for the service. If you are without a boat it is best to ask in Gananoque for a possible ride out or contact Half Moon Bay through its website, listed above.
