About Us

Love boating?

CPS-ECP Bay of Quinte Squadron has been sharing boating knowledge in the Belleville area since 1954.


We are one of over 150 squadrons across Canada that belong to the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS-ECP).  One of the largest volunteer organizations in Canada.

Camaraderie

Boaters always have stories to share - whether you've been on the water 30 days or 30 years, we learn from each other.

Boating Courses

From the PCOC (boating license) to formal classroom training - we are the only organization to offer courses intended to bring you back to port safely every time.
