Docking at Harbourfront Centre either as a seasonal or visitor means you will enjoy quick access to Toronto Harbour and Lake Ontario. Located on the Toronto Waterfront our marinas and boardwalk berths are easy to access from home or the office. For visitors we have the closest marinas to the City core, downtown shopping, theaters, sports and concert venues and major attractions.
Visiting Harbourfront Centre by boat is easy! All docking areas can be accessed through either the Western or Eastern channel. Upon entry into the Toronto Inner Harbour, head for the north shore.
Please call to check in with the appropriate Dock Attendant at the facility selected.

In Memory of Helmut Dressler 1939 – 2014
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Dock Master Helmut Dressler who passed away unexpectedly on February 20, 2014.
Helmut has been a constant presence in Marina Four for over three decades, caring with pride and dedication for its boats and its people.
We will remember him for his love of boats, particularly wood boats and his care of them. We will remember his love of Great Danes he each distinctly named Tiger. We will visualize him driving down the road in his classic Mercedes-Benz chauffeuring Tiger this summer.
Thank you, Helmut, for all your years of service and dedication.
Dockage on John Quay is offered along the southern boardwalk adjacent to the new Amsterdam Brewhouse at Pier 4. John Quay is not a protected marina but a linear boardwalk on the Inner Harbour just outside of Marina Four. This area is used exclusively for larger visiting pleasure craft and ships from approximately 40 feet to 200 feet in overall length. We recommend that smaller vessels dock within one of our two marinas. Reservations are accepted for overnight visits. Washrooms, showers and coin laundry are available. Dockage for three hours or less is subject to availability and is based on a first-come, first-served basis. Please call the Marina Four office for availability.

John Quay is located south of the CN Tower near the southern boardwalk at berth 248, as indicated on chart #2085 (approximately 43 38.251° N, 79 23.115° W). John Quay boardwalk dockage lies between Marina Four to the east and the entrance to the Toronto Police Marine Unit basin to the west.
As an alternate to John Quay, Harbourfront Centre may also have available a berth for larger vessels up to 230 ft. west of John Quay at HTO Park West. This area is located at berth number 222 on chart #2085 alongside a City of Toronto park in the western central waterfront. The coordinates are 43 38' 14"N and 79 23'23"W. It is somewhat secluded with less pedestrian traffic but with that comes a greater distance from most shops, restaurants and activities. Please advise us if this berth seems suitable.
