Valleyfeld, St Lawrence River

A popular and attractive harbour at the western end of Ile de Salaberry. It lies several miles off the main St Lawrence Seaway and is accessed by a buoyed channel with a minimum depth of 2.5-3.0m. One can either anchor in the main bay or go into the marina. Depths inside the marina basin are under 2.0m, but there are a number of berths adjacent to the fuel berth at the marina entrance which can accommodate drafts of 2.0-2.5m.

The marina has excellent facilities including a pleasant swimming pool and more communal gas fired BBQ grills than most marinas have berths.

The town centre is within easy walking distance of the marina and has a wide variety of shops and restaurants, the latter ranging from truly dire to exceedingly good. However the restaurants are liberally spread around the town and you may not find the better ones by chance. This is a place where it pays to check on TripAdvisor or a similar app before going ashore to eat.
