Harbours & Moorage Rates

Powell River is a standout among the great boating destinations of coastal British Columbia. Sitting on the shores of the Salish Sea and close to the world-renowned Desolation Sound, the City of Powell River manages two harbours, Westview/South Harbour and North Harbour. They provide moorage for pleasure craft, commercial and transient vessels.

Wharfinger Services are available at the Wharfinger Office from 7:30 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday, during winter months. Beginning in June and running through the summer, the office is open seven days a week from 7:30 to 4 pm. To contact the Wharfinger's office, phone 604-485-5244, or email jkinahan@powellriver.ca

In our ongoing environmental initiatives, the City has installed new fishing line recycling bins at both harbours and Town Centre Recycling Depot to protect marine mammals and fish from being killed by becoming entangled in fishing line. The recycling bins are for fishing line ONLY. If you fish, we ask that you please dispose of your line properly.

North Harbour is a modern, up-to-date facility, mostly for Powell River boaters. It is not for transient vessels. The harbour has annual, short-term, seniors and temporary moorage rates. There are approximately 330 mooring slips for vessels from 5-metres to 18.5 metres (16 to 60 feet).

The City’s main boat launch ramp is situated in the North Harbour, providing Powell River’s primary saltwater access.
