Cruising Guides

Parks Canada – 1000 Islands National Park
There are many island docks and anchorages among the 1000 Islands.  This is a 3 hour downwind sail from Kingston and brings you to the heart of the Islands.  Many protected anchorages and island docks.  These cannot be reserved and operate on a first come first serve basis.  If you are heading there in July and August, we recommend arriving no later than 3pm to secure a dock.  Fees can be paid by credit card on the island.
