As of Friday, May 29th, both the Confederation Basin and Portsmouth Olympic Harbour Marinas are open for seasonal reservations at this time. We remain closed to transient boaters until further notice and booking requests are not being accepted. Boaters interested in the status of our marinas are encouraged to stop in at our offices, contact us via phone or e-mail, or follow along on the City website and COVID-19 updates here: https://www.cityofkingston.ca/resident/covid-19
Stopped briefly for fuel. Took on 2000 litres, emptying their tank in the process. Staff were friendly and helpful. In South South Westerly wind the Marina Channel is choppy with some backwash off the break wall so take care in a chop. The fuel dock is large and solid. This Marina is run down like its sister municipal marina, Confederation Basin. Clearly Kingston is having some financial stress or does not prioritize servicing the boating community. That’s pretty short sighted. We spend a $$$. Trenton port Marina is a shining example of how a municipality can service the community. Kingston could learn from them. A City as regionally important as Kingston can do a far better job. This decline has been happening for years. they need a management reset.
