About Us


Silva Bay Resort & Marina is located on sunny Gabriola Island, an island affectionately referred to as the “Isle of the Arts” for its vibrant community of artisans and cultural opportunities. Silva Bay Marina offers yacht moorage services and is pleased to provide yacht storage to meet the needs of each of our valued clients, whether their moorage requirements are classified as permanent, winter, or year-round transient. 

Gabriola Island assumes pride of place as the island situated furthest to the north of all of the Southern Gulf Islands. It is easily accessible from the Vancouver Island metropolitan city of Nanaimo as well as the smaller quaint village known as Ladysmith. 

Silva Bay has earned its cachet as one of the most prominent yacht moorage locales for mariners passing through the Georgia Strait en route to or from mainland British Columbia. Its northern location makes it a convenient place to dock your boat for short or long term moorage prior to voyaging onward to such popular areas as:

  • Northern Gulf Islands
  • Sunshine Coast
  • Desolation Sound
  • Broughtons
  • Southern Gulf Island
  • San Juan Islands
  • Discovery Islands

Silva Bay’s location lends itself to an air of relaxation and comfort for mariners visiting the region to enjoy. A marina that is also home to a luxurious resort which caters to yacht owners with discerning tastes, each of our guests is treated to pristine views of the incredibly scenic Strait of Georgia, whether they enjoy it from the comfort of their elegantly appointed suite or the marina grounds. 

The staff at Silva Bay place the highest emphasis on the delivery of top-shelf guests service to make each visit to the marina memorable. Our valued guests return to Silva Bay again and again to experience a destination renowned for its coziness and island charm, allowing them to escape the ordinary to experience the extraordinary. 

At present, Silva Bay Resort and Marina is under new development. Our leadership team places the highest priority on maintaining the top-level standards we are known for. To this end, we welcome guests feedback to help us make each Silva Bay moorage or resort stay a premiere experience.
