IMPORTANT 2000 NOTE
ANCHORAGE AREA CLOSED

Is this privatization or rip off ?
Will we be charged for using waterways next?

Where will it end ?

One was able to anchor inside the breakwalls at Confederation Basin, at the souther end of the sheltered harbour. There was a convient wall hidden behind a parking lot which allows you to dinghy ashore with comparative ease. But no more a shock as we came in from a storm.

Kingston confederation Basin anchorage

The City of Kingston maintains the harbor and if you are looking for shore leave on your voyage east this is the place. Everything is close by from here with an excellent information booth operated by Kingston at you door. In the summer you can listen to the music in the park or explore Kingston proper. There are 100 seasonal and 300 Transient berths which have 20 or 30 amp power depending on the dock.

For major repairs and a full service shipyard many commercial vessels pass under the basquille bridge and use Kingston Marine Services which is found a block and a half past the liquor store and west of the channel leading to Ridout canal.

Kingston pub

Kingston is another port where there is more entertainment and merriment ashore than even the most stalwart can investigate. Near the Confederation Basin you will find enough delightful sidewalk pubs offering imported beer and pub fare to good old fashioned rock and roll nightclubs.
