The marina is the town’s centerpiece and is nestled in rolling hills of the riverbank. From the top of the hills on either side… you’ll have a view! Fishing and pleasure boats tie up in the wide lazy river. A gazebo on its bank often hosts open-air concerts. A former train station now hosts Island East visitor information centre. It is the entry point to cycle and walk the Confederation Trail. On the upper reaches of the banks, the old customs house, now the Garden of the Gulf Museum, stately stands giving the river a sense of place. Montague wharf on the opposite side of the river is home to several fishing boats.
This busy site hosts many community functions, thanks to its extensive green space. Multi-berth marina with floating berths, water, showers, artisans shop and restaurants. There are several Restaurants, 2 Breweries and Motel in walking distance. The Montague River is a Canadian Heritage River, designated in 2004.
