Located 4 miles south of Southampton (Southampton entrance marked by Chantry Island Lighthouse) and approximately 10 miles north of Bruce Nuclear Power Development, a large complex visible for miles offshore.
To enter the harbour, Logie’s Rock serves as an excellent reference point. It is marked by a light buoy and lies 2 miles west-northwest of Port Elgin.
When entering the harbour it’s important to stay within the buoyed channel. Range markers with green lights lead boaters in on a course of 109. The channel depth is 10-14 feet from chart datum, but outside of the channel, it quickly shallows to as little as 2 feet. Harbour staff monitor VHF channel 68.
Port Elgin Harbour Operates from May until October. Rates and information can be found on the Municipality of Saugeen Shore’s website.
