About Peterborough

Our base on the Trent Severn Waterway is located along the Otonobee River, in Peterborough. Horseshoe Bay Marina, previously known to locals of the Peterborough area as Willow Bend Marina, has recently undergone a full refurbishment in time for our 2024 season opening. The location of our Peterborough base offers our customers an idyllic starting point for exploring the stunning waterways of the region. Situated roughly mid-way along the Trent Severn Waterway, this base provides easy access to the vast network of lakes, rivers, and canals that the region has to offer. From here, our customers can embark on their epic cruising adventure, discovering the natural beauty of the Kawarthas and beyond.
