Marking the River’s Most Dangerous Shoals
In partnership with the Thousand Island Association, Save The River volunteers adopt and place markers on some of the most dangerous shoals on the River.
The program’s primary goal is to heighten boater’s awareness of the importance of careful navigation throughout the Thousand Islands region.
Boaters be aware – only a small fraction of the many shoals in the region have markers!
Be a Safe Boater
Boating on the St. Lawrence River can be difficult for even the most experienced mariners. To be as safe as possible, boaters should always:
- Use navigation charts at all times. Remember not all shoals are marked!
- Pay careful attention to weather forecasts.
- Wear life preservers and be sure your boat has appropriate safety equipment.

If you find a marker that has come loose from its marked location, contact Save The River at (315) 686-2010 to have it picked up and placed back in its appropriate location.
