If boating fills your boots, imagine a place ideal for boating: dozens of pristine lakes to explore; new scenery at every turn; endless opportunities for water sports and fishing; plenty of marinas, outfitters and other places to stop along the way.
Nothing but you, the sun and long stretches of sparkling water ahead…Ahh boating in Peterborough & the Kawarthas. In fact, there’s no debate on this one: we have some of the best inland boating in the world. And what’s even better is that Peterborough & the Kawarthas lies at the heart of the Trent-Severn Waterway. From here, Canada’s longest chain of locks and canals connects our lakes and rivers to the Great Lakes and beyond.
This is a paradise that should be on every boater’s bucket list.
Boating enthusiasts of every kind love the Kawartha waters: anglers looking for the catch of the day; sightseers out for an afternoon on a pontoon boat; wake-boarders showing their stuff behind a ski boat; power-boaters and cruisers on a week-long jaunt. Boating attracts people from all walks of life, but they share a couple of things in common. They know that a couple of hours on a boat feels like a full day’s break. And no matter how pressing the problems of the day, it’s easy to leave them behind when you take to the water in Peterborough & the Kawarthas.
