Boats on the river have to go through a lock to access the Louise Basin and the marina. The 170-foot-long and 45-foot-wide lock operates daily from 7:00 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. The lock operator can be reached on VHF channel 71.

Boats over 170 feet in length can access the inner basin when the tide is above 3.2 metres and all the lock’s doors are open.

For more information on the marina’s services, please see  www.marinaportquebec.ca

1. When both doors of the lock are open, a green flag is hoisted with the mast at the main gate.

2. Before entering the lock, be sure that the green light is on and gives you priority.

3. The red light indicates that other boats are engaged in the lock.

4. The speed of circulation is 3 knots maximum.

5. It is prohibited to stop in the lock when both doors are open. 6. Use channel 71 to contact the lock master if necessary.

7. Reservations for the lock are necessary all weekends and on holidays. They can be made by telephone at 418-648-2233 or at the Marina's reception desk (not more than 48 hours before.) No reservations are to be done on the VHF.
