Comox Area

May of 2006 saw the opening of our satellite base in the Comox Valley Regional District. This base provides un-paralleled access to the Desolation Sound cruising area and beyond. We had very strict standards when choosing a base for this area and Comox Bay has met them all.

Beautiful anchorage in the area

The base offers easy flight access via Comox Airport, an excellent grocery store, accommodations, liquor store and Riverside Pub, all within walking distance of the marina. The marina also offers the closest access to Desolation Sound available from any B.C. Bareboat Charter Association Member.

Please note that we do not offer a shuttle service from the Comox Airport to Comox Bay Marina. We recommend reserving a spot on the Ambassador Shuttle Service: visit their website to make your reservation www.ambassadorshuttleservice.ca or call toll-free at 1-877-339-5252.

Safe Anchorages - Desolation Sound

Under ideal conditions, Mittlenatch Island is an easy sail from the Comox Bay Marina. This is a good spot for a temporary anchorage. If the winds blowing NW, head to the South side of the island for some protection. If she's blowing SE, anchor on the North end.

Another good spot to anchor overnight is at the Twin Islands, south of Cortes Island. This is a two hour sail from the marina.
