The Ladysmith Community Marina is the first marina on your port side as you enter Ladysmith Harbour.

Ladysmith Harbour

We have 1,100 ft. of visitor moorage plus overflow space, and are a popular stop for travelling boaters. Our 3,000 sf floating Welcome Centre provides complete washroom, shower and laundry facilities, marina office, free WiFi, a fireside lounge with a large TV, meeting room (available for rent) and the Oyster Bay Cafe.

For those anchoring elsewhere or coming from across the bay, we provide a Dinghy Dock, located on the north side of the Welcome Centre, down the SE channel between docks A and B.

Moorage price is $1.40/foot for the first night and $1.10/foot/night thereafter in the same season.

We are a short 10 minute walk to downtown Ladysmith or Transfer Beach, and an 11 minute drive to the Nanaimo airport.

While reservations are not required, we encourage you to do so. It’s always best to let us know you’re coming, particularly with a large boat.

Call us at 250-245-1146 or on VHF 66A.
