Welcome to the Ladysmith Community Marina, a unique waterfront experience of heritage and hospitality. We are located in Ladysmith Harbour, on Vancouver Island, BC in the heart of the Gulf Islands. As you enter the harbour, we are the first marina on your port side. The marina is conveniently located; just a 10-minute walk gets you to either Transfer Beach (swimming, kids’ water park, kayak and paddleboard rentals) or shops in downtown Ladysmith. If you need to connect further afield, the Nanaimo airport is an 11-minute drive from the Marina.
Enjoy the many amenities at the Welcome Centre including the Marina Office, lounge with a big screen TV, washrooms, showers, laundry facilities, pump out and free wifi. Enjoy culinary delights, during the summer months, at the Oyster Bay Café (open seasonally). Explore our Maritime Museum and vessels, visit the Harbour Heritage Centre, take in underwater action at the Sea Life Centre, learn about our working waters with a guided tour of Ladysmith Harbour, or simply relax, take in the coming and going of boats and soak up the peaceful waterfront ambiance.
Our Paddling Centre offers launch access to the harbour for anyone with a canoe, kayak or paddle board. And when you’re not out on your water vessel, you can safely store it at the Centre for a low quarterly fee. The Paddling Centre is located on C dock where you can safely paddle out to open water.
