NavigationNavigation notes
  • Good overnight anchorage in 12 ft (4 m) can be found in the bay upstream of N106.

  • Be careful of the "Cruiser Cracker" (rock awash) in the vicinity of N106 and clearly marked on the chart. It is critical that you remain within the tightly marked channel between markers N106 through N103 as you approach Manotick Marina. The area is locally known as Rideau Narrows.

  • Anchorage can be found in the bay just upstream of N97 in deep water.

near  Manotick
When is an anchorage not an anchorage? Several are indicated in this travelogue, & you may find more on your travels. Look for an area off the navigation channel with a minimum depth of about 5 feet for your entire swinging radius (rode should be: depth x 5 + boat length). Please don't anchor in the navigation channel...even for lunch. Besides being illegal, it can be dangerous to other traffic &, on a busy day, will be quite uncomfortable.
