Marina from the air

Near the entrance to Vancouver Island's Discovery Passage (49 degrees 52' N, 125 degrees 7' W), is our 146 slip marina. It can accommodate boats up to 40’, both sail and power (a few spaces for boats up to 46’). Secure year-round moorage is offered with daily, weekly, monthly or yearly rates. 

The Marina is accessed by sea through a channel alongside and south of the Oyster River, between scenic Campbell River and the beautiful Comox Valley on central Vancouver Island. With direct access to the breathtaking Desolation Sound, Discovery Passage, hundreds of miles of coastline and many popular fishing spots, we are the perfect launching point to explore Vancouver Island's many marine attractions.

Mitlenatch Island Park is the most well known local marine park in the area. Rebecca Spit, Smelt Bay, and Read Island parks are also popular and easily accessible by water. All boast many interesting birds and a wide variety of sea life.

You will need a tide of minimum 7’ for a boat with a draft of 4.5’. Tide reference table is Mitlenatch Island. The channel is narrow and exposed to S.E. winds. It is not advisable to attempt passage during high swells or winds.
