Port Elgin, Ontario

  • Spacious boat launch

  • The harbour
  • Plenty of parking
  • Crystal clear waters

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. For rates, and more information, go here.
