Dec 19, 2023 - A waterway in boating terms can be broadly defined as any navigable body of water that can be traversed from one location to another by various types of watercraft from small canoes to seagoing ships. Waterways can include canals, streams, rivers, lakes, harbors, and oceans located throughout the globe. This term is, however, more specifically invoked to connote a pathway or course designated as a particular route of travel similar to that of a vehicular highway or roadway. Applicable for recreational purposes, certain waterways are also intended as commercial shipping lanes.
Although subject to the usual jurisdictional regulations, waterways may entail additional restrictions when it comes to special navigation rules. Visit WikiTags for additional information about various types of boating waters.
