Comox is home to four marinas which hold over 500 pleasure boats and a commercial fishing fleet.
The marinas are protected by rock breakwaters which is in turn protected by the Goose Spit which extends out into Comox Harbour, providing one of the safest year-round harbours on Vancouver Island. The Comox Harbour is a great launching spot for some of the best salmon fishing in the world. The Comox (municipal) Marina offers a boat launch and is located right next to Marina park with plenty of parking, washroom facilities and a play area for children. A two minute walk is all that is required to reach the shopping, pubs, and restaurants of downtown Comox.

Design plans for the Marina Park
The Town has engaged Cohlmeyer Architecture and the Algis Corporation to help plan for the re-development of Marina Park. Improving the park and waterfront area, as well as improving the connections between the park and Comox Avenue, will lead to increased downtown vitality, which is one of Council’s top priorities. The consultants have been working with stakeholders, Council and staff over the past several months in order to come up with a vision. Once plans are finalized, we will be applying for grants from the Island Coastal Economic Trust and Western Economic Diversification Canada to partially fund the re-development.
