Little Current on Manitoulin Island
The beautiful clear waters of the North Channel await your arrival into the Port of Little Current. Enjoy some of the best boating in Lake Huron on your trip through the North Channel, staying a while in the quaint town of Little Current.
Little Current is a picturesque small town, its downtown bustling in the summer months with boats, and travellers strolling the recently renovated docks.
Enjoy the beautiful new waterfront, including two brand new waterfront pavilions, providing clean restroom and shower facilities to marina and dock guests, as well as covered pavilions for hosting events.
The Port of Little Current docks are almost a kilometre (a half-mile) long and have undergone significant upgrades in the last few years, including 100 floating slips, beautiful main docks and attractive white light fixtures, two beautiful new waterfront pavilions featuring brand new washroom and shower facilities for boaters as well as space for outdoor events under the pavilions.
From the port, you are centrally located to enjoy the waterfront scenery, proximity to outdoor recreation, and, best of all, you are across from the shops of downtown Little Current on Water Street, providing anything you may need. Walk along the docks to the landmark red brick Post Office Building to send a postcard, then cross the street for clothing, restaurants, art, or grab a latté! Plus, you’ll find all the practical amenities you’re looking for, only steps from your boat.
Be sure to take the opportunity to stop by the beautiful Port of Little Current and enjoy all that the town has to offer!
