Activities along the St. Lawrence River

Fun on the St. Lawrence River

The mighty St. Lawrence River attracts visitors for its beautiful beaches, picnic areas and breathtaking scenery; it also offers a great place to spend the day.

Take advantage of several full-service marinas and convenient boat launches along the river from Iroquois to Lancaster. Enjoy waterskiing and jet-skiing or anchor and head ashore for a beach picnic. The region’s waterway is also a great opportunity to sail, or drift by canoe or kayak past islands full of natural beauty. When under sail in the western stretch of the river, be sure to connect with the Stormont Yacht Club in Long Sault.

This river is known around the world as being one of the best fishing hotspots in North America. This angler’s paradise offers opportunities to fish for almost any fresh-water fish, including perch, muskie, walleye, sturgeon, pike and more. Bass and carp fishing are amongst the most popular with a number of organized fishing tournaments each year.

Divers, from beginners to experts meet to explore over 40 dive sites throughout the region, from Glen Walter, to Iroquois, including the famous Eastcliffe Hall shipwreck, a Great Lakes cargo ship that sank in the 1970s. Get acquainted with the famed “Lost Villages” underwater cemetery, Rail Bridge and Lock 21—known as one of Canada’s top five shore dives.
