    This is a great place where you can walk through the sand dunes hills or stay at the beach and swim (Lake Ontario). There are walking trails. In the summer, kids would love this area.

    You can't miss this place....it's a giant, colorful water park! There were some really good aspects of this business and some REALLY BAD. All in all, they evened out, but with the amount of people there on a Monday, the business does not seem to be hurting at all.
    I am not xenphobic AT ALL but with the Mexican flags flying, it did seem sort of third world. I mean those outhouses, seriously, in Canada?? Gotta be some sort of regulations about that.
    We rented a pontoon boat that held 12, so for our party of 7 it was great! Glad we had two experienced boat drivers in our group, because there wasn't much training.
    The BBQ worked well, the guy gave us a good tip on using the anchor, and a good time was held by all!

    My partner surprised me with a private tour... to propose! Brent and Moira were unaware of this, but they truly made the experience. The were our photographer/videographer and just happened to have a bottle of non-alcoholic bubbles which was icing on the cake for newly expecting me. The tour was exciting and informative and they were able to take a smooth route back when my morning sickness kicked in. They were incredibly friendly and entertaining hosts and Mickey was an amazing safety officer. It was a very memorable experience and we would absolutely recommend to friends and groups.

    We saw the sign on the harbour front at the back of the Picton Harbour Motel. Called Mike - one of the two captains - really helpful. Booked for the next day. We showed up but the other party of 3 had got the wrong day. Our best luck as we had the boat all to ourselves, with Mike giving us great commentary. The tour lasts about 90 minutes and is really great value at $47 each. It was great to see the harbour from a different viewpoint and we learnt so much from Mike. Would highly recommend this tour. Very safe too. Only seats 5 people plus the skipper.

    We decided to eat here for lunch, after seeing it from our boat tour of the bay earlier in the day.
    The restaurant is open to the public and offers a magnificent view of the harbour from both the outside and inside. Our lunches were quite satisfactory. I ordered the Grilled Wrap, and my husband ordered the Western Sandwich. I don't feel they were over the top, but not bad either. I would probably consider going there again for dinner, which offered quite a selection, plus I was told it was more popular.

    My grand daughter and her friend, both 10 years old, went here for 4 days. They had a super time even on the rain and thunder days. Not bored once.

    Brent and Moira provided a wonderful, safe and enjoyable sailing outing. As experienced sailors, you're in good hands making your way across the bay. Great conversation, knowledgeable about the area and terrific tips about other attractions. Very accommodating and provided flexibility to work with our schedule. Highly recommended.

    Never been in a Kayak before, so I was a bit nervous. Shouldn’t have been, after everything was explained to me and was told “they’ve never lost anyone yet”, I felt at ease.
    After about 10mins, I had mastered the technique and started to enjoy the beautiful nature around me. Saw so many types of different birds.
    For beginners, I suggest going straight down the river as it’s very calm.
    Experts can go under the bridge into Lake Ontario.
    A must adventure!

    The boat was good and easy to use, and West Lake is a beautiful area. The trip itself was quite good since the weather cooperated, though I kept checking and rechecking the forecast for days beforehand due to West Lake Watersport's 72 hour cancellation policy. What has ruined the experience is even though the boat was brought back in exactly the same condition that we rented it in, and that I have an email saying that the security deposit will be returned, it's been 2 weeks and I still have not received my money. It's been over a week since I received any correspondence from them about this matter. I would not rent with them again.
