See Historic Interconnected Locks

One of the finest interconnected systems of navigation in the world, the Trent Severn Waterway lays claim to numerous historic locks, and is beset on all sides by lush and diverse vegetation. The Waterway meanders through 386 kilometers of Central Ontario, connecting Lake Ontario and Georgian Bay. Locks along the way are accessible from towns like Peterborough, Orillia, and Midland.

Launch your adventure in Peterborough where boaters planning on leaving their vessels overnight may obtain overnight mooring permits, which are also valid for use at Thousand Islands National Park, Georgian Bay Islands National Park, and Fathom Five National Marine Conservation Area. Don't have a boat of your own? No problem – Voyageur Canoe Tours at the Peterborough Lift Lock let you immerse yourself in the lifestyle of the voyageur. Well, a voyageur with an experienced guide, at least.

This isn't just a float along the river – the Trent-Severn Waterway offers boaters a way to retrace a legendary shipping route while taking in uniquely beautiful scenery on calm and quiet waters. And the locks boaters will encounter along the way are attractions in and of themselves.
