Busy Boating Day at Lock #42

A very busy boating day on a busy long weekend in August. This was filmed during our return trip homeward to Lake Simcoe, coming back from Georgian Bay. Location is at the top side of Lock #42, Couchiching Lock, of Ontario’s 240 mile long Trent Severn Waterway.

The weather had been forecast for strong winds and potentially heavy thunderstorms, so we were eager to get back to our home port before the worst of it hit. As luck would have it, we made it back mere minutes before a big storm rolled through! Click on this link to see what that looked like, as well as more footage from this part of the trip – https://youtu.be/2GslNAotBh4

Long Boat Cruise Video – Port Severn to Georgian Bay

This boat cruise aboard ‘Boogaboo IV’ (our 1997 Sea Ray 400 Sedan Bridge), takes us from the bottom side of Lock #45 at Port Severn, Ontario and through to Severn Sound. We pass under the provincial highway #400 overpass, through an area known as ‘Tug Channel’. As you will see, the passage below the bridge is extremely tight, with a strong down-bound current most times just to make things more interesting ;-)


A little farther along, we pass through the ‘Potato Island Channel’, a narrow, man made cut through the granite rock that Georgian Bay is renown (and sometimes cursed) for. From there, it’s a straight run through a well marked passage to ‘Severn Sound’, a large bay that takes one onto Georgian Bay proper, as well as the town of Midland, to the south. You can see an expanded view of our arrival at Midland from this same trip by following this link; https://youtu.be/yWFxrSYWrfE.

Lock #45 is the ‘last’ lock on Ontario, Canada’s 240 mile long Trent Severn Waterway – a series of interconnected lakes, rivers and canals that joins Lake Ontario in the south-east with Georgian Bay (Lake Huron) at this north-west terminus.
