Bateau Channel Trail


The Bateau Channel is a long, narrow stretch of the St. Lawrence River that separates Howe Island and the Canadian mainland. Working fields, young forests, summer cottages and cobble shorelines line the channel. This sheltered route is best utilized by paddlers wishing to access the Admiralty Islands, downriver, or the Kingston Isles that lie upriver.

Paddlers can explore marsh-lined bays, relax on sunny beaches and stroll beside shallow creeks. Departure: The westerly access point at Treasure Island Marina is a secure launch site that allows paddlers to get a taste of the open waters before embarking on the more sheltered journey down the Bateau channel route. Follow Highway 2 east of Kingston, approximately 8 km, to reach the marina and boat launching facility. Information provided by the paddle 1000 website.
