Water Play and Sport
With its abundance of lakes and navigable waterways, as well as the Bay of Quinte in Lake Ontario, this area is a great place to experience all things ‘water’. Here are some of the things you can do in the Bay of Quinte:
Walleye or pickerel fishing is serious business on the Bay of Quinte. This area is known as the Walleye capital of the world, meaning this is the spot for some amazing trophy fishing. Professional guides know where the fish are biting and can teach you the basics, while boat charters offer group excursions to favourite spots. Be sure to visit one of the local bait and tackle shops to get fully kitted out with a reel, live bait and maybe even a few helpful hints for your pickerel fishing tour. This is also cottage country and rentals can be found throughout the area’s bays and rivers. Imagine waking up to an early morning of walleye fishing followed by a lazy afternoon nap in a hammock by the water.

Go Active – Standup Paddleboarding is one of the world’s fastest growing sports. This accessible, easy to learn, fun activity is great for older children to adults.

Feel the rush as you fly through the air on a wakeboard. This sport is a new take on waterskiing and is kinda like being pulled by a boat while riding a small surfboard. The short flexible board allows for jumps that gets the rider up into the air.
