Pleasure craft only dockage on John Quay is offered along the southern boardwalk adjacent to the Amsterdam Brewhouse at historic Pier 4. John Quay is not a protected marina but a linear boardwalk on the Inner Harbour just outside of Marina Four, 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.
The dockage of vessels other than pleasure craft – such as those operating as commercial vessels offering the carriage of passengers (i.e. charters, rentals, water taxi operation or the like) – are strictly forbidden within all dockage locations. Such commercial vessels are not permitted to pick up or discharge passengers at our dockage locations.
Reservations are accepted for overnight visits. Washrooms, showers and coin laundry are available within Marina Four. Dockage for three hours or less for a flat rate fee is ideal for a weekday lunch at a local restaurant. Slips on John Quay or the south side of E dock within Marina Four are available on a first-come first-served basis. 50 amp power is available on John Quay for three boats using a single outlet each. Please call the Marina Four office for availability. Please see Visitor Dockage Reservations for further information.
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 berthing available for larger vessels (up to 230 ft.) west of John Quay at HTO Park West. It is somewhat secluded with less pedestrian traffic but with that comes a greater distance from most shops, restaurants and activities.
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.
Please advise us if this berth seems suitable.
