Welcome to the Tall Ships of Brockville Website
It seems the City of Brockville is getting known for all things related to tall ships. In 2013, Brockville served as the first port of call in the 1812 Tall Ships Tour which featured more than a dozen ships strewn along the waterfront of the St. Lawrence River.
In addition to the festival, other notable tall ships related festivals or businesses include:
Tall Ships Landing Waterfront Condos
The Fuller Group of Companies is responsible for this magnificently beautiful building located in Brockville Ontario on the shores of the 1000 Islands, across from Blockhouse Island. As per their website, Tall Ships Landing is “more than just beautiful waterfront condominiums, Tall Ships Landing is a complete waterfront recreational lifestyle”. If you are looking for premium retirement living without the busy-ness of the city, this is it!
All Ships Festival
The All Ships Festival, June 19-21, 2015, is a celebration of life in the 1000 Islands. Citizens, friends and visitors of the City of Brockville are invited to explore and enjoy the majestic waterfront during this ‘festival on the river’. Looking for a unique adventure? Why not set sail on one of the daily sail outs aboard the Empire Sandy or the Faire Jeanne. If you’re looking for something a little different, we’ve got the Empire Sandy’s three hours dinner cruise sailing out nightly.

Tall Ships Adventure
Although not based in Brockville, the Tall Ships Adventure Youth Voyage sails on the Fair Jeanne, which calls Brockville her home port. On this program, youth ages 13-18 can spend a week or more living aboard the Fair Jeanne, learning to sail a traditional tall ship. Hoist the sails, steer the ship, climb the masts, stand a watch and make lifelong friends along the way. You don’t need to know a thing about sailing – we’ll show you the ropes!
