Oiseau Bay is one of many spectacular coastal features in Pukaskwa National Park. It's accessible by paddling or by hiking from Hattie Cove. We hired Keith McQuaig, the local marine operator, to run us - Martha, Martha's parents and me - down to the area to spend the afternoon. Oiseau's features include a kilometer long sandy beach, significant fen habitats, extensive swales between dunes and several very rare plant species, including Pitcher's Thistle.
