The Admiralty Islands, located just southwest of the historic village of Gananoque, offer a wealth of paddling destinations. The picturesque channels and sheltered back bays of this sprawling cluster of islands will provide enough adventures to easily fill an afternoon or full day.
Wanderer’s Channel invites a relaxed exploration, while Halfmoon Bay intrigues the imagination, and the warm sand beaches of Thwartway Islands’ western shore are a refreshing place to cool off on a hot afternoon. Aubrey, Beaurivage and McDonald Islands are ideal places to view the sun setting over the open water, or to set up camp for an evening on the islands beneath towering oaks and rugged pines.
Departure: Gananoque Municipal Marina offers several amenities for paddlers including overnight parking, pay phones, showers and ice! Several other marinas in the village offer easy access to the river with a full range of amenities offered.
