Silva Bay Marina offers permanent, winter and year round transient moorage. We are located on the island of Gabriola which is known as the "Island of the Arts". Gabriola Island is the most Northern of the Southern Gulf Island chain and is a short distance from the city of Nanaimo and the town of Ladysmith on Vancouver Island.

Silva Bay is the best spot for mariners coming across Georgia Strait from the mainland or going to the mainland, as well as a great stop over point for mariners going north to the Northern Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast, Desolation Sound, Broughtons and beyond, or for heading south to the rest of the Southern Gulf Island, San Juans and further south.
