Ontario / Canada Trent-Servern Waterways by boat?

Have you done that? Any good advice regarding must-do, don't-do, watch out, don't bother?

    Yes, been there - done that. It s part of the Canada route on America's Great Loop. I have been living on my boat for 14 years and I am this minute, on my 5th cruise around the Loop.

    The Trent-Severn is a boaters' paradise. . . I strongly and highly recommend it. While I could go on and on for two days about the Trent-Severn, I will save you (and others) a very lengthy answer.

    Instead, here are some great links to learn all about the do's and don't(s) and don't miss.

    These links cover boat size restrictions, legal, speeds, locks, site-seeing, and a whole 'boat load' of great information:

    This first link is all about cruising the Trent-Severn and what to expect along the way:


    This link covers all the Canadian laws and regulations, including the Trent-Severn.


    This link covers the Rideau Canal (my favorite Canadian side trip) :


    And this is my website, which covers the entire Great Loop, and what to expect along the way:


    My only advice is take all the time you can - it is a great boating adventure - one you don't want to 'rush' through....

    I tip my hat to David B from Michigan! stable advice! do no longer hear to those landlubbers!! this is extraordinary what number of human beings assist you to understand what you may no longer do! Port credit Marina in Mississauga Ontario has a lot of folk residing on their boats all 3 hundred and sixty 5 days around! regrettably I rather have an particularly huge puppy and he's growing to be previous so i can't flow directly to my sailboat yet...yet!! See you in Port credit in a number of years! this is the only place i know of. in case you detect any others enable me know! hiya Larry...i'm up in Georgian Bay...for now!

    I figure somebody on here is really jealous of Richard and Capt John as they both almost always get a thumbs down for perfectly good answers.
