Let us help you promote your public boating events or activities

Boating Events

May 23, 2024

From a family boating celebration at your lake or marina, to a major Destination Rendezvous, Canadian Boating is pleased to help you promote your publicly open events to boaters – and there is no charge!

All we ask is that you send us information about your event or activity and at least one nice photograph to appear in the story.

We especially want to support boating activities featuring family, safe boating and educational aspects. Events like Waterski and Wake Board Shows, junior fishing tournaments and learn-to-fish are excellent examples. Your Canada Day event could be another example. Here is a basic list of the information we would need for promoting your event:

  • Name of Event
  • Date of Event and times
  • Location
  • Organization managing the Event
  • Purpose of the Event, (eg: Learn to Fish, Learn to Ski or Surf, Lake Plastic Clean-up, etc.)
  • Website or Event information source
  • Admission or Participation fees (if any)
  • Telephone contact if available
  • Email contact

Your boating events or activities that are open to the public can be promoted in the Canadian Boating Onboard Digest with 20,000+ National Circulation, or in Boating Industry Canada News Week Digest to the marine trade with National Circulation of 5,500+ industry readers.

Send your information to Allegra Smith-Herriott at asmithherriott@kerrwil.com

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
