Welcome to our beautiful piece of the BC coast! Nestled in a quiet corner of Pender Harbour's Garden Bay, we're your full-service destination. Located on Hospital Bay, our marina offers 2,300 lineal feet of deep water moorage in the form of finger slips and a 400 foot-long dock; the latter can accommodate vessels up to 150ft. We have all the amenities you would expect from a leading marina, and more! For your boat, we have 30 and 50 AMP shore power, fresh water for your water tank, and a fuel dock. For you, we have clean, hot showers, washrooms, complimentary WiFi, laundry facilities, garbage and recycling, and a 3-cent per litre discount for moorage guests at our fuel dock.
Best of all, we have ice cream and milkshakes! John Henry's legendary ice cream bar is located in our on-site General and Liquor Store. In addition to ice cream, you will find much to love about our store. We have a great selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, including beer, wine, spirits, coolers, soft drinks and mixers. You will also find grocery essentials like fresh, frozen and packaged foods, and household and personal care items. Even your boating needs are catered for, as we sell a full complement of local nautical charts and key boating guides and books. And then there's our eclectic array of gifts! Our store is open 7 days a week, year round.
Another very popular feature at John Henry's is our on-site Café. We start with great coffee, mouth-watering baked goods, sandwiches, soups, chili, salads and other seasonal dishes. We top off our delectable fare with an exquisite view. Does it get any better? The Café is also open year round, 7 days a week, and has indoor and outdoor oceanfront seating. During the Summer months, it offers additional service.
If you're looking for a couple of nights away from your boat, John Henry's has four welcoming oceanfront cottages available. All cottages have one bedroom with a Queen bed, bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen, living/dining area with cable TV, WiFi and a double sofa bed. All cottages also have a private deck or garden, a BBQ and wonderful views.
Whatever the reason for your stay, it will be a memorable one. The views and sunsets are spectacular.
In the busy Summer months, marina and accommodation reservations are strongly recommended.
