For Visitors

Ladysmith Harbour

We have 900 feet of visitor moorage, and are a popular stop for traveling boaters. Our 3,000-square-foot floating Welcome Centre provides the Marina Office, complete washroom, shower and laundry facilities, a fireside lounge with a large TV, the Oyster Bay Café (opening is dependent upon Provincial Health Orders) and free WiFi.

Pump out is available ($10.00 for two tokens).

Please note: washrooms, showers and laundry facilities during COVID-19 may only be available between 9 am and 5 pm daily (summer office hours). Please contact us for more information at 250-245-1146 (press 2).

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

Reservations are strongly recommended.

It’s always best to let us know you’re coming, particularly with a large boat.

Dock spaces and boathouses are competitively priced because we are a volunteer-run, community organization. Although we have a waiting list for annual moorage, you are invited to put your name on the list. There is a $25/year fee to go onto the wait list, and a requirement that you provide us with the OVERALL length of your vessel.

During the off-season, when fewer visitors frequent our Marina, we make some of our visitor moorage available on a seasonal basis.

If you would like to moor your boat during these off-season months, please call us at 250-245-1146 (press 2) for details or email info@lmsmarina.ca
