  • Currently in the waterway since 1 August in transit from fla to tbay. At the moment we have been waiting at the CN swing bridge past Lake Couchiching for 1 hour and we’re told we will have to wait one more. This information was to be found nowhere. The scenery is nice and the local staff are friendly but if you are on ANY timeline DO NOT LISTEN to the info on the webpage. It takes far longer than 4-5 days. The locks don’t open until 9 and in a lot of cases you wont get an opening until 930. Like I said the staff were helpful and friendly but I calculated each day we lost at least 1 hour of to chit chat. One particular lock, with no back up of traffic, we waited 1.5 hours to get through. There were 4 boats. Some of the channels were difficult to navigate and not well marked. Also very shallow in longs runs 3-4ft. Hit a few deadheads in the channel as well as a rock that took out one of my propellers. A 2k fix. I have another hour to go on as I wait for the swing bridge( as there are no trains and the operator smokes and drinks his coffee) but I’ll wrap it up with main message. DO NOT take this waterway if you are in any kind of a timeline. If you do, add 5-8 days to the initial 4-5 they tell you it will take on their website. Regret coming trough here.
  • Beautiful area in the summer. Love camping and fishing this area.
