Kingston is well-known for its incredible waterfront location on the shores of Lake Ontario and offers the world's best freshwater sailing. The City has hosted over 40 World and Olympic championships including those of the 1976 Olympic Games. Every year, thousands of visitors from around the globe flock to the city for CORK, the Canadian Olympic Training Regatta Kingston.
Cruises of the Thousand Islands are another popular activity. Tour boats regularly leave Kingston's downtown harbour for voyages up the St. Lawrence Seaway
Justs off the shores of Kingston, divers will find some of the most pristine, intact wrecks in the world. Kingston's waters provide unparalled freshwater diving with over 200 wrecks including warships, schooners, barques, and steamships.
For those who prefer to stay dry and appreciate Lake Ontario from the shore, Kingston's Waterfront Pathway is part of the larger Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail and provides an eight kilometre walk along Kingston's scenic waterfront.
