Come and enjoy our 3,000 square foot floating Welcome Centre, located midway along the main Visitor 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, fireside lounge with a large TV screen, Oyster Bay Café (seasonal), a Social Dock for hosting group functions like boater rendezvous or small office parties, and free WiFi.

Welcome Centre

At the LMS 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; re-certified in November 2018 as a “3 anchor” marina by Clean Marine BC.
