Baie aux Outardes, North Quebec

Although nothing more than a slight indentation in the coast, this bay offers a remarkable amount of shelter from the prevailing southwesterly swell and would make a perfectly acceptable passage anchorage in settled weather. The best anchorage appears to be just off the beach north of the mouth of the Betsiamites River, although in NW winds it would also be possible to anchor off the beach to the south of the river mouth.

The sandy beaches and salt marshes stretch for miles on end in this area making it a very scenic stop in settled weather.
