Boat launch update — The Belleville Street Boat Launch at the Wellington Harbour is closed indefinitely due to traffic and safety challenges at this location.

An additional boat launch on West Lake near Wellington will be open to the public for the 2022 boating season. The boat ramp at 16057 Loyalist Parkway will allow boaters to launch of smaller watercraft; the gravel ramp will not be suitable for larger, heavier boats.

The boat launch is tentatively scheduled to open in the middle of June. Updates will be provided in the coming weeks. Learn more

Municipal Boat Launches

All municipal boat launches operate on a pay-to-park system (as opposed to the former pay-to-launch system). Parking fees are charged between May 1 – October 31.

Boat launch parking permit FAQ

As of April 26, you can purchase your full-season boat launch parking permit online and it can be mailed to you or left for pick up at The Edward Building or any PEC Library Branch.

If you require help with this process, please contact Customer Service at 613-476-2148 x. 1023.

Permits can also be obtained in person at the Edward Building, 180 Main Street Picton, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday or a Prince Edward County library (various locations and times of operation).

When purchasing in person and to take advantage of the resident rate of $50+HST, you must provide proof of residency, such as a driver’s licence, tax bill, utility bill or lease agreement. You can list up to two licence plate numbers on a single permit. However, as the permit is not transferrable, proof of insurance linking the licence plates to a single owner is required.

Using the online purchase form, you can pay with Mastercard or VISA. At the Edward Building, you may pay with credit card, debit, cash or cheque. At the libraries, you may pay with cash or cheque. Please make cheques payable to The County. The total for residents is $50 + $6.50 HST = $56.50. The total for non-residents is $100 + $13 HST = $113.

If you’re parking at any Prince Edward County boat launch, you’ll need to pay for parking. For a single use, that’s $10 for a vehicle (no trailer). If you’re planning to use a municipal boat launch for parking a
vehicle more than five times in the year, it’s worthwhile purchasing a seasonal parking permit.

If you have insurance for both vehicles that confirms they are owned by the same person, up to two
licence plate numbers can be listed on the permit.

It’s possible to pay for parking each time you use a municipal boat launch. The municipality uses
MacKay Pay, the same paid parking provider as is used on Main Street Picton. We recommend
downloading the MacKay Pay app in advance of your outing, and setting up a profile with your credit
card information to save time and effort. Once at the boat launch, you would open the app and enter in
the Zone. Follow the instructions on dockside signs.

Yes – but you’ve got to plan ahead and you’ve got to stick with your plan. Purchase a day permit from the Edward Building or from your local library. The date of use and your licence plate number will be displayed on the permit.

Kayaking and Canoeing

Kayaks and canoes can be launched from any of the municipal boat launch locations, though some locations are better suited to non-motorized watercraft than others. Parking fees are required for paddlers, but are just $10 for a vehicle without a trailer. Season parking permits are available. 

NEW IN 2022: Paddle docks will be installed at Glendon Green and Weller’s Bay boat launches.

Non-motorized boats can also be launched at Massassauga Point Conservation Area, managed by Quinte Conservation Authority or any of the Provincial Parks in The County.
