All boats, dinghies, jet skis and kayaks visiting the marina must check-in prior to docking (located in the far south end of Maple Bay – past the blue and white yacht enclosures).

Products Available

Bottled water, pop, ice (blocked and cubed), ice cream, chips, peanuts, and marina logo items (caps, key fobs).

Pumpout

In 2018, Maple Bay Marina partnered with the Municipality of North Cowichan to open a new marina pumpout facility that provides boaters with an environmentally responsible way to discharge waste and protect our world-class waters.

Regular pumpouts are important to ensure that your holding tank always has room when you need it.

Knowing the location of the nearest pumpout station is also a good habit. So, it’s great news that Maple Bay Marina, in partnership with the Municipality of North Cowichan, have opened a convenient new pumpout facility at the marina, providing boaters with an environmentally responsible way to discharge waste while protecting our world-class waters.
