St Lawrence Seaway

Does anyone have any information on going from Nova Scotia to Chicago? I can only find info on going "downstream". Would this be a nice trip or hell because of currents?

Re: St Lawrence Seaway

Despite being the right place for your question, this section of the site is pretty quiet. I'd try re-posting it in the General Discussion area, where people who have done it are more likely to see it and reply.

Having dove on wrecks in the St. Lawrence I can attest to the down stream current as well as to the proliferation of zebra muscils!!

Re: St Lawrence Seaway

I can only speak to the upper part around the thousand islands. Not really an issue going either way other than a difference of about 1.5 knots...
I am not really from Toronto

I am not really familiar with the Gulf itself but I understand the fog can be a significant issue, but in good weather I think it would be a great place to cruise.
