In the past, the Museum’s water related events have been limited by a lack of dock space. The Thousand Islands Boat Museum (TIBM) docks will make possible an expanded boat show and parade, sailing school, in-water floating exhibits, boat rentals, cultural events, and much more.
PHASE 1 – DOCKS AND BREAKWATER
The dock project was approved by the Town of Gananoque in 2014. Through the generosity and long-term commitment of the founding Board, private donors, the Thousand Islands Community Development Corporation, the Antique Boat Museum, and local businesses, extensive docks were developed and constructed in 2015/2016. In addition, a 24 foot wide floating breakwater was constructed and installed to protect the structure, and to provide a safe environment for in-water activity.
PHASE 2 –THE BOAT PORT
The addition of a boat port will complete the dock facility, and become the centerpiece of the TIBM.
Together with the TIBM the community is creating a sense of place for those who live here and visitors to the waterfront.
Bringing the heritage of the St. Lawrence River, the 1000 Islands, and the magic spirit of the region to life.
