It’s the long weekend here in Canada! If you’re celebrating the nation’s birthday on your boat, Discover Boating has compiled a list of boater-friendly places to go (some links are expired, but the resource is helpful nonetheless).

Many Canada Day boating celebrations include fireworks. Of course, fireworks are best viewed at night, though nighttime boating does pose more risks. John Gullick, CPS-EPS Manager of Government and Special Projects with Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons has some tips to keep in mind while celebrating on the water this weekend.

We hope everyone has a safe and happy Canada Day long weekend!
