Boating in Canada

Canada is a boating paradise that many people overlook. Our friend to the north has more lakes than any other country in the world and 150,000 miles of coastline. Here are some of our favorite spots to take your Crownline if you want to go boating in Canada.

Howe Sound, British Columbia

Howe Sound

Howe Sound is a breathtaking place. Located north of Vancouver and dappled with islands, it’s is the perfect place to explore the gorgeous waters surrounded by majestic mountains and verdant hills. Just a short trip from the city, a vacation to Howe Sound has it all. If you don’t want to stay in Vancouver, choose one of the surrounding small towns, state or national parks.

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario

 Niagara on the Lake

Take full advantage of Lake Ontario by visiting one of the most beautiful small towns in North America. Niagara-on-the-Lake is a great base for access to Lake Ontario and Niagara Falls, just a short cruise down the Niagara River. Lake Ontario is an ideal place to boat with all the space you need to cruise to your heart’s content. There are charming small towns, bustling big cities, more than 20 wineries, and great parks and trails to explore along the coastline.  Crownline Dealers in Ontario: CAS Marine & Long Island Marina & The Cove

Chaudière-Appalaches, Québec


The Chaudière-Appalaches region near Québec City includes 150 miles of shoreline along the Saint Lawrence River. The area is steeped in history and a prime destination for water sports and exploration. It’s beautiful any time of boating season, but perhaps at its most breathtaking in the early fall when the afternoons are still warm and leaf color is at its peak.  Crownline Dealer in Quebec: Groupe Thomas Marine

Gulf of Saint Lawrence

Gulf of St Lawrence

This massive gulf in southeastern Canada is one of the largest estuaries on Earth. The coastline of the 60,000-square-mile body of water at the mouth of the Saint Lawrence River is dotted with charming villages, superb hiking trails, and opportunities for some awe-inspiring whale watching. From cruising to fishing to relaxing on beautiful beaches, the Gulf of Saint Lawrence is an absolute paradise.

Princess Louisa Inlet, British Columbia

 Princess Louisa Inlet

Who can resist a secluded paradise accessible only by boat or plane? Only 3.7 miles in length, Princess Louisa Inlet is relatively small, but its serene natural beauty and magnificent scenery will create lifelong memories. It’s tough to get there, so plan for a longer trip. You can stay in Egmont, British Columbia, and travel up the Jervis Inlet to reach the fjord and take in the granite-walled gorges and many waterfalls in early summer, including Chatterbox Falls cascading 120 feet from cliffs above.  Crownline Dealers in British Columbia: Dockside Marine
