while it can be 60 one day the next the water temps can fluctuate considerably.

I think you were cited that figure in the shallow areas such as near Parry Sound. The rest of the bay can be quite cool.

Never been there when it was hot and that destination is a favorite of mine..off Killarney and Prince Edward Island and the French River.. Winds tend to come from the west.. and while land temps can be 85 inland, I have always worn a hydroskin on the water and occasionally wished I had drysuited up.

Its a nice picturesque location but not nearly as tropical as you envision,

Here is from White Squall Oufitters just north of Parry Sound http://www.whitesquall.com/pdf/naturalhistory03.pdf

Remember that when evaluating air temperatures over land, air temperatures over water can be vastly different.

It does get in the high 80's here in Maine. Then we grab our kayaks and fleece and go out in the Gulf a couple of miles..And don fleece.
