Boating paradise. The diversity of this waterway has made the 1000 Islands among the most popular places to go boating in North America.

This destination-for-everyone includes the wide-open waters of northeastern Lake Ontario and the meandering channels and coves of the St. Lawrence River. Every type of boater is found here, ranging from sailors to speedsters to cruisers.  

Dotted by more than 1,800 islands, the St. Lawrence River is one of the most picturesque places to throw a wake. The river has safely marked channels and innumerable alternatives including narrow passageways, peaceful coves and popular anchorages. Public island parks on both sides of the border are among the most popular places to throw anchor and float with friends.

Every community has ample fuel stations, marine stores and transient dock space to let you head ashore for as long – or as little – as you want.

The open waters of Lake Ontario bring swift breezes especially popular with sailors. Safe harbors and mooring locations make a week-long – or season-long – journey possible.

Thousands of boaters keep their vessels here for the season while nearly as many launch at dozens of ramps scattered throughout the region.

Whether you’re a lifetime boater or looking to rent a craft for the weekend, you’ll find the 1000 Islands to be among easiest – and most beautiful places – to cruise the water. And of course, boat responsibly; bring a chart, be respectful and enjoy. You’ll find just what you’re looking for here in the 1000 Islands.
