For Visitors

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

Ladysmith Harbour

We have 900 feet of Visitor moorage plus overflow space, and are a popular stop for traveling boaters. Our 3,000 sf floating Welcome Centre provides a marina office, complete washroom, shower and laundry facilities, a fireside lounge with a large TV, large meeting room, the Oyster Bay Cafe (seasonally) and free wi-fi. Pump out available ($10.00 for two tokens). Please note: washrooms, showers and laundry facilities during COVID-19 are only available between 9am and 5pm daily (regular office hours). Please contact us for more information at 250-245-1146.

  • Rates as of April 1, 2020 are $1.50/ft for the first night; $1.25/ft for consecutive nights of the same stay.

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

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 as we are continually expanding available space and services. There is a $25/year fee to go onto the wait list, and a requirement that you provide us with the length of your vessel.

Call us at 250-245-1146.


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 for details.
