Oakville’s extensive Lake Ontario shoreline includes three harbours: Bronte Harbour on Bronte Creek, Bronte Outer Harbour on the Lake, and Oakville Harbour on Sixteen Mile Creek near the downtown core.
The Town of Oakville is reminding residents to be safe around swimming pools, lakes, rivers and other bodies of water. Enjoy water safely by learning how to swim, swimming with a friend, wearing a lifejacket, ensuring children are supervised around water and being responsible by not engaging in risky behaviour.
Harbours staff provide haul-out services, mast stepping and unstepping. Operating, maintenance and capital improvements are funded from fees charged to boaters. For more information and a breakdown of service rates, visit the Harbour Service Rates page.
Oakville offers a variety of angling opportunities. Please look for ‘No Fishing’ signs, posted in areas where fishing is not permitted.
