Comox Harbour Marina
Located on the East Coast of Vancouver Island, Canada, the Comox Harbour has provided shelter for ships since the late 1800′s. Today it is home to a large commercial fishing fleet and a sizable number of pleasure craft. Nestled beneath the Beaufort Mountains and the Comox Glacier the Comox Harbour has spectacular views.
Boaters traveling Georgia Strait, the Gulf Islands, and Baynes Sound will find dedicated guest moorage, with 20, 30 and 50 amp electrical service, available on the South East side of the Harbour from mid May to mid September each year. Washrooms, showers, laundry, tourist information as well as an air conditioned lounge are located in our new building on the Wharfhead to make your stay in port more enjoyable.
The Comox Harbour is just two blocks from downtown. The Town of Comox has interesting shops on the main street as well as a shopping mall, a 9-hole golf course, excellent restaurants and pubs! Regular bus service is available from the Comox Mall to downtown Courtenay. Courtenay is well worth a visit, with art galleries, a museum and great shopping. Airline links are available from the Comox Airport to all points east and bus and rail service is available from Courtenay to other parts of Vancouver Island.
Fish and seafood is often available at the popular Fish Sales dock, where you can buy directly from local fishermen.
The Comox Valley Harbour Authority manages two locations, the Comox Harbour Marina and the Courtenay Slough Marina. They are both communities in themselves, with plenty to see or do. Mingle with friendly locals, chat with fishermen getting their boats in order, or just stroll the new walkway on top of the breakwater for a fabulous view of the Comox glacier. There is always lots going on.
From before written history “Comox” has meant ‘Place of Abundance’ to the natives that roamed the British Columbia coast. As Vancouver Island was settled and cultivated by European settlers, this became even more true. The Comox Valley’s ocean, farms, mountains, and rivers give great diversity to anyone’s visit. The fishing fleet on the Comox marina dock includes classic wooden boats, that are a part of our marine history and working heritage. This is a busy and interesting working waterfront where guests are welcomed and made to feel at home.
Come in and meet the friendly crew at the Comox Harbour Authority office and experience the Comox Valley.
