How far will we go?

Coverage Area:

Our coverage area generally consists of the waters off of Port Colborne from the Grand River in the west to the Niagara River in the east, extending south to the Canadian/U.S. border.  This a total area of approximately 240 sq. nautical miles (432 sq. kilometers) and covers approximately 35 nautical miles (63 kilometers) of shoreline.  If required, JRCC Trenton will sometimes task us beyond these boundaries.

The waterfront communities we directly serve within these boundaries include Port Colborne, Dunnville, Wainfleet, Ridgeway and Fort Erie, as well as visitors to these communities and residents from surrounding areas such as Welland.
