Life on the Water
The Bay of Quinte is a long, narrow bay off the north side of Lake Ontario offering sheltered waters for 4 season fun. The region is also home to the Trent River, in Quinte West and is the gateway to the 386 km Trent-Severn Waterway. Through a series of over 40 locks it connects Lake Ontario to Lake Huron.
Boating, fishing and spending time at the beach are easy ‘after work’ pursuits here in the region. With so much water access, you can leave the office and be out on the water in just minutes.
