Comox Valley Harbour Authority is one of 54 Harbour Authorities whose primary purpose is to provide services to the Commercial Fishing Fleet on the British Columbia coast.   The Comox Harbour has a long history of being a vital transportation link for the surrounding community.  Since the first dock was built in 1874 the marine industry has been a major influence.  Priority for year-round moorage in this facility is given to Commercial Fishing Vessels, very limited space is available for year-round pleasure craft.  

The environment is very important to us, our staff are trained in Marine Oil Spill Recovery.  Spill kits are located on the docks and at the top of the ramps.  Emergency pumps and spill recovery materials are on hand. Regular vessel checks are conducted.

Our Commercial Fleet leaves the dock for the fishing grounds in mid May and returns in mid September.  During this time the East basin is available for visitor moorage on a first come first serve basis. Reservations are not accepted; large boats should call ahead for availability.
