Marina Quay West | Marina Four | John Quay

Docking at Harbourfront Centre either as a seasonal or visitor means you will enjoy quick access to Toronto Harbour and Lake Ontario. Located on Toronto's central waterfront, our marinas are easy to access from home or the office. For visitors we have the closest marinas to the City and local 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.

All areas monitor VHF Channel 68.

Helmut Dressler and TigerHelmut Dressler

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.

John Quay

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. Short term hourly dockage 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 berth #241, 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.
