North Saanich Marina is located on the northern tip of the Saanich Peninsula, with 40 km of oceanfront encircling a landscape of rolling fertile farmland dotted with rocky hills. This picturesque municipality has been called one of Canada’s best rural residential communities. It’s also one of southern Vancouver Island’s best ports for sailing and boating around BC’s Gulf Islands, the US San Juan Islands, and beyond. The Marina is located in Sidney’s Shoal Harbour — a migratory bird sanctuary only 20 minutes from Victoria, with plenty of free parking beside the docks.
North Saanich is the perfect starting point for those looking to explore the Gulf Islands and the San Juan Islands, as well as the Discovery Islands and world-famous Desolation Sound to the north.
