Few locations on the planet offer as much excitement for power-boaters as here amongst the 1000 Islands. Fun on the blue highway is never more than a few minutes from the front door of your new home, thanks to the incredible scenery offered by more than 1,800 islands and their iconic attractions. Nowhere else can you find such legendary landmarks like tragic Boldt Castle on Heart Island, with its background story of doomed love, and Singer Castle on Dark Island, with its mysterious history and secret passages. Brockville also owns iuse for swimming, picnics, and camping. And the Brockville Powslands that visitors can er and Sail Squadron gives novices and old pros alike the support they need to get on the waves with confidence and skill.
Of course, you can also take a more hands-on approach and paddle through our region’s waterways connected to the UNESCO-recognized Frontenac Arch Biosphere.
