The Friends of Wellers Bay is a non-profit association of volunteers dedicated to enhancing the enjoyment of the waters and beaches of the bay. The association was formed in 1987 to dredge open a channel between Lake Ontario and the bay for easy boat access. Dredging has continued to be the main responsibility. Over the years, the association has become an active voice working to improve all aspects of life on the bay.
Where is Wellers Bay?
Wellers Bay is south of Trenton, Quinte West, Ontario Canada and east of Brighton and Presquile Provincial Park. It is both in Quinte West on the north and in the northwest corner of Prince Edward County. The Bay is hour-glass shaped and about 8 kilometers long, bounded by farm and residential land on the north, east and south and lovely sand beaches facing Lake Ontario on the west.
A limestone promontory called Bald Head stands in the middle of the long sand beaches. The town of Consecon is situated at the south-eastern corner. The area is a mix of farms, year-round homes, seasonal cottages, campgrounds and marinas. Residents and visitors enjoy fishing, water-skiing, sailing, boating and the beaches in the summer and snowmobiling and ice-fishing in the winter. In July the association hosts its annual fishing derby.
