A World-class boating adventure

At 386 kilometres in length, this is one water route you won’t want to miss – boaters from all over the world agree. It takes just over a week to travel the length of the Waterway by boat. Passing through 37 conventional locks, two sets of flight locks, two of the world’s highest hydraulic lift locks and a marine railway are all part of the trip. Boaters are also free to embark from any point, taking shorter overnight or day-long trips on the Trent River, Kawartha Lakes and Lake Simcoe or Severn River.

No boat? No problem! Many marinas on the Trent-Severn Waterway offer boat rentals, as well as fuel, supplies, showers, repairs, pump-out, and overnight mooring. Get to know us by embarking on a houseboating adventure. Travel on the Trent-Severn Waterway is flexible: join us for your summer vacation, or simply lock-through to the next lake in search of the biggest wave, the best sand bar, or new friends.
