Boating is a popular Canadian pastime. Our Backroad maps are chock full of boat launches, marinas and countless boating destinations. From the famous Trent Severn Canal in Ontario to Desolation Sound on the British Columbia coast we cover much more than land based activities.
Although we do not have a specific section on boating, you will definitely find countless places to cruise or to set out fishing. Our parks sections often denote those parks that rest on lakes that are popular with boaters. Then of course you will see hundreds of lakes described in the fishing section. Again, many of these are good places to explore on a boat. Finally, you will find the maps littered with boat launches and marinas. All told, there is no shortage of information for the boater in our Backroad Mapbooks.
