Welcome Centre

Come and enjoy our 3000 square foot floating Welcome Centre, located midway on the main dock.

This beautiful facility was completed in 2012, and includes amenities important to marine visitors such as the Marina Office/registration desk, washrooms, showers, laundry, free WiFi, fireside lounge with a large TV screen, Oyster Bay Café (seasonal), a meeting room, and a Social Dock for hosting group functions like boater rendezvous or small office parties. The Welcome Centre is completely wheel chair accessible, including an elevator to the second floor meeting room.

At the Welcome Centre, We:

  • Welcome the community to the waterfront
  • Promote and preserve Harbour heritage
  • Develop marina infrastructure to attract large-scale marine tourism to the coastal region
  • Advance the profile of eastern Vancouver Island and the Southern Gulf Islands as a destination of choice for visiting recreational boaters
  • Help to improve the environmental health of the Harbour by providing a public marine sewage pump-out.
  • Commit to environmental responsibility. In June of 2015 we received full “3 anchor” certification by Clean Marine BC.
