Lakes in the Yellowknife area offer many commercial and recreational opportunities for residents and visitors during open-water months. Water areas are shared by users of floatplanes, sailboats, power boats, personal watercraft, canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and more.
All users have a shared responsibility for the safety of themselves and others. Exercise caution and situational awareness to avoid and manage potential conflict with other users. For more information on water activities in areas where floatplanes operate, and the capabilities and limitations inherent in the various uses, please refer to our Yellowknife Summer Multi-Use brochure.
