PORTS

Would You Like To Become a PORTS Retailer?

The Canadian Yachting team is hard at work updating the cruising guides that everyone loves.  Aerial photography was completed in July for Georgian Bay, researchers diligently updated the guide with fresh information and now our creative team and printers are getting ready for the brand new editions. PORTS Georgian Bay will be ready for purchase in early 2020 followed closely by the brand new Rideau Canal and Ottawa River edition.  NEW - the print guide will include a FREE digital download with purchase!

With publishing of the guide in full-swing, we are also working hard to update our Retailer Network too.  The Guides will continue in the format boaters tell us they love – spiral bound so they fold flat, convenient size and substantial stock. The Guides will be available in marinas and bookstores as well as online marine focused stores.  To confirm that you are on our retailer list and to order your guides, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Lake Ontario and Trent Severn Waterway/Lake Simcoe guide release dates will be announced for 2021 as soon as the Georgian Bay and Rideau Guides are complete. We will share the details once finalized.

Since 1984 PORTS Cruising Guides have been the cruising boater’s essential companion. Whether you’re cruising Lake Ontario and the Thousand Islands, the Trent-Severn Waterway, or Georgian Bay, The North Channel and Lake Huron you’ll find everything you need to know in PORTS – where to dock, what to do, where to eat, where to find fuel, where to shop, where to anchor and where to find the best deals on groceries and supplies. It’s like having your own private concierge, everywhere you go!
