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.
