Boating

Gananoque’s magnificent waterfront is a playground for outstanding recreational boating, including canoeing, kayaking, and a delightful array of water sports. The 1000 Islands are a natural place of wonder to explore on the water through motor boating, house boating, paddle boating or sailing, with breathtaking vistas and captivating wildlife close enough to touch.

Exploring the 1000 Islands by Boat

The Admiralty Islands, located just southwest of Gananoque, offer a multitude of boating excursions. The breathtaking channels and sheltered back bays of this spectacular cluster of islands provide adventures to easily fill an afternoon or day. Wanderer’s Channel invites an easygoing exploration, or visit Half Moon Bay’s imposing granite rock “outdoor cathedral”, and the warm sand beaches of Thwartway Islands’ western shore. Aubrey, Beaurivage and McDonald Islands are ideal places to relax on a hot summers day or view the sun setting over the open water in the evening.
