Cruising Guide to Lake Ontario

Hi everyone, hopefully everyone is staying safe and looking forward to starting the 2020 season. I am looking for a book that would have the latest information on cruising around Lake Ontario. Marina's to stay at places to drop the hook etc places to avoid. I looked here in the library section but did not see anything. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions if one was going to purchase a guide book. This will be our first time on Lake Ontario and we will based out of Kingston Ontario area.
Thanks
Frank

Re: Cruising Guide to Lake Ontario

Two suggestions:

Waterway Guide, Great Lakes 2020, Volume 1
https://www.waterwayguide.com/ship-store/product/82

Ports: LAKE ONTARIO EDITION (2016)
Lake Ontario Edition | PortsBooks.com

I'd also use the online tools, Active Captain and Waterway Explorer
Notes: The Ports series is not being updated as frequently, but it was an excellent guide when I was there.

Full disclosure, I work for Waterway Guide .

For charts I'd pick up the Richardson's Lake Ontario book:

The PORTS books are pretty good. I have yet to check out the Waterways Guides, but I promise Mike that I will

(The PORTS franchise has been picked up by the publishers of Canadian Yachting and they've started issuing updated versions. They also have an accompanying app)

Thanks Mike that is some amazing information I just spent the last half hour on the Garmin ActiveCaptain. That is really cool, I am also going to order some charts and the guide book appreciate the response.
