Silver Harbour is a busy ice fishing spot in the winter. Sometimes there are ice boat races held there.

Remember hiking out on the ice is not for beginners, and is never completely safe. You need to be able to determine if the ice is safe, have the proper safety gear with you, and know what to do if someone does go through the ice. You will also need to use a compass or GPS to navigate across the ice if it begins to snow or if the wind comes up and you can no longer see the shoreline.

Silver Harbour Conservation Area is located on Silver Harbour Rd. in the Township of Shuniah. From the City, drive east along Lakeshore Dr. to Silver Harbour Rd. Turn right (south) on this road and follow the signs.
