Your on-site Interpreters know their history extensively and can shed light on the scuttling of the HMS Nancy along with other fascinating stories. Where did the British crew disappear to after the Americans found the sunken HMS Nancy? The answer is at Nancy's Island.

Great place to take the family while in Wasaga Beach. Very historic, especially on the "Siege of Nancy Island Weekend" in August. The reenactment is very real & we try not to miss it every year. You won't be disappointed.
