Come for the day or stay for a lifetime

As the iconic centrepiece of one of Vancouver Island’s most serene and picturesque areas, we’ve been welcoming boaters to our full-service facility since 1945.

We are a true full-service marina, complete with fuel dock, pump out, boatyard with Travelift, dining, shopping and docking assistance – all on one site. Our long-term boaters appreciate that our harbour is also a peaceful location, well protected by mountains from most winds, especially those strong SE winds.
