Welcome to the Peterborough Marina 

About our Marina

The Peterborough Marina is located in the heart of downtown Peterborough on Little Lake.  Recognized as the centre of one of Canada’s premier recreational regions, Peterborough, a vibrant urban centre at the gateway to cottage country, is diverse and active community with a population of over 82,000 residents.  From Little Lake and the Otonabee River, you can travel the historic Trent-Severn Waterway, which connects 134 lakes and some of the most magnificent landscapes along its 386 kilometre route. At Lock 21, just upstream of Little Lake, you can see the world's highest hydraulic lift lock. The Peterborough Lift Lock is a national historic site and an engineering marvel.

The marina offers daily, weekly or seasonal mooring with 100 slips. Our friendly and helpful staff look forward to making your visit enjoyable. We can help you find special attractions and share ideas on things to do while you're in town. The marina is also close to the Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism visitor centre. Or you can visit our event calendar to see what's going on in the community during your stay.
