Above or below the waters of the St. Lawrence River, a voyage of discovery awaits you. Scuba enthusiasts can explore any of approximately 200 shipwrecks – some of the world’s best freshwater diving! Paddle enthusiasts can kayak or canoe secluded inlets. 1000 Islands and Seaway Cruises depart several times daily from Blockhouse Island – taking you on an excursion of the eastern end the islands.
Fulford Place is an eclectic and elegant mansion, built at the turn-of-the-century for Senator George T. Fulford. The Brockville Railway Tunnel runs beneath the city to the waterfront. The Brockville Museum, with outstanding photographs and interesting artifacts, is a great way to get a glimpse of the city’s past. Historic walking tours feature Ghost Walks every Friday evening.
For year-round fun, head to the Aquatarium, a state-of-the-art family fun centre that digs beneath the surface of the water to tell the story of the 1000 Islands. Interact with real-life divers inside tanks, communicate with Seaway captains piloting ships passing the city and learn the fascinating history of the region. An indoor ropes course and playful river otters are just a few of the extras that make the Aquatarium a “must do.”
Whatever the season, Brockville has delicious dining, incredible golf, antiques and artists, excellent theatre, diverse shopping, and an old world atmosphere that will enchant you and bring you back again and again.
