Rees Street Slip


This slip is the center of recreational water use in the Inner Harbour. It is the home of the Harbourfront Nautical Centre, where they offer lessons for canoeing, kayaking, sailing, and powerboating. Lessons are available for beginners and enthusiasts of all skill levels and physical abilities. There is also the opportunity to rent boats from this location.

A combined sewer outfall is located here, stretching out from the centre of the slip. This site is sampled by Swim Drink Fish staff and citizen scientists from the Toronto Monitoring Hub, which is one of Swim Drink Fish’s monitoring hubs. The waters at Rees Street Slip are tested twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. New results are posted to Swim Guide on Wednesday and Friday afternoons until the end of September.
