An extremely friendly and pleasant marina that can be reached in a single flood tide heading upstream from Quebec and a convenient place to stop and wait for the tide before going through the Richelieu rapids.

The chart shows depths of 2.2 to 2.4 m in the entrance. However we found the depths in the entrance channel to be closer to 1.0m, meaning that a boat drawing 2.0m or more can only get in and out of the marina at half tide or above. This is not a problem if arriving from Quebec as the tides mean you will arrive close to HW Portneuf. However if arriving from upstream you may have to time your arrival appropriately.

Once inside the mole entrance there appears to be 2.5m at LW in hte basin itself. The marina has full facilirties and a fuel pontoon. There is a very pleasant bistro restaurant above the marina office with fantastic views over the river. It is open in the evenings and occssioanlly at midday on the weekends if the weather is fine.

For those not wanting, or unable because of tide, to enter the marina it is possible to anchor just ot the SW of the marina between the drying mudflats and main channel in about 8.0m of water.
