The Ladysmith Maritime Society is pleased to offer guided tours of the Harbour during summer months, in our restored lifeboat, Maritimer.

Tours operate 7 days a week in July and August at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and in the months before July or after August, by request.

Thousands of people have enjoyed a 90-minute cruise, listening to stories of the local history, viewing eagles, seals, otters, cormorants, starfish, jellyfish and other wildlife along the way. Maritimer can accommodate up to 10 people, and our skippers are Transport Canada-certified.

Beginning in the spring of 2015, we will be inviting community groups and classes from local schools to come down to the Marina for a Heritage Field Trip.

Educational materials on the local Oyster Industry, including a teachers guide booklet, and student kit projects are being prepared including a book titled, ‘Mom Was An Oyster Farmer”.

Downtown Ladysmith is a 10 minute walk from the marina where you’ll discover a wide variety of cafe’s, pubs, shops and services. The 49th Parallel Grocery offers a special service to boaters by providing a shuttle service from the store to the marina.
