We’re 2 minutes from highway 400 and beside Lock 45, the very last lock heading west on the Trent-Severn Waterway. We’re above the dam and have, arguably, the best launch facilities on the waterway with secure long term parking for your vehicle and boat trailer.
Start your boat trip with us, end it here, or boat up and rent a transient slip overnight (enjoy dinner at The Dam Grill!) just to say you made it all the way to Georgian Bay!
One of the great engineering marvels of the Trent-Severn Waterway, the Big Chute Marine Railway is a must-see. Big Chute is also ‘Lock 44’, the next lock east from Port Severn on the waterway. You can also visit by car as it’s a scenic 25 minute drive from Bush’s Marina

The Trent-Severn Waterway is a national historic site and one of the world’s great achievements. Stretching 386 KM from Trenton on Lake Ontario to Port Severn on Georgian Bay the waterway connects dozens of inland lakes and rivers into a scenic wonderland unparalleled anywhere. The system required 45 locks to allow boats to navigate the 597′ of elevation changes along the waterway. We’re located directly adjacent to Lock 45 (The Grill shown in background)
Enjoy a meal on the waterfront deck while you watch boat traffic navigate Lock 45 of the Trent-Severn Waterway. As you can see, the lock is close enough you can call to the captain as they lock through!
Each fall the Serendipity Princess docks for several weeks at Lock 45 for it’s ‘Fall Colours Tour’. Enjoy a breathtaking riverboat trip to Big Chute Marine Railway. Arrive early and enjoy lunch at The Dam Grill before you depart or dinner after. This photo was taken from the grill – great view ‘eh!
During the winter Bush’s Marina is home to three families of wild swans. They rent several slips from us nearest the dam.
With a little quiet coaxing they will eat right from your hand!
