Cruise the Great Lakes
Rich history, diverse cultures and spectacular vistas.
These are the Great Lakes ports of call.
Brockville is the eastern gateway to the 1000 Islands and is one of the oldest and most charming cities in Ontario. Known as the City of the 1000 Islands, we attract visitors from around the world who are looking to spend some time exploring our public waterfront on the mighty St. Lawrence River.
Take a stroll or a bike ride on our accessible waterfront to view North America's great inland shipping route. Enjoy a 1000 Islands Boat Cruise, explore the Brock Trail, Canada's First Railway Tunnel, and the Brockville Museum. Enjoy afternoon tea on the verandah at Fulford Place Museum or take in a show at the Brockville Arts Centre. Do some shopping in one or all of our fabulous boutiques, antique shops or art galleries in beautiful, historic Downtown Brockville.
Visitors stopping by Brockville have plenty of interesting sites to see, including Brockville's new signature, year-round attraction, The Aquatarium - Discovery Centre of the 1000 Islands.
In Brockville, we usually aren’t in a hurry; we walk the trails surrounded by nature to work, we chat, laugh and nod hello as we pass by each other on the street. We celebrate tradition and believe in preserving our heritage. We encourage the entrepreneurial spirit and support our community of small businesses.
