Food, Drink, & Post Office
Stocked with basics and essentials we feel that boaters may want or need such as milk, bread, basic foodstuffs including frozen meats, juice and bottled water, along with paper products, cleaners, bath and shower items like shampoo, razors, conditioner, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes. There is also sunscreen, sunglasses, a selection of batteries, stomach and headache remedies, cleaning supplies, laundry soap, and treats for small and big kids, including sweets, candy, ice cream, chocolate bars, chips, soft drinks and mix.
For souvenir hunters, there are postcards and clothing items such as hats, t-shirts and sweatshirts. We carry a small selection of boating guides we think are particularly well done, and pertinent to our area, along with Canadian Hydrographic Tide Tables. We soon will stock fishing supplies or marine hardware. If you have a mechanical problem, we will try and find parts for you in the local area if they are available.
For those who enjoy starting their day with news and current events, we have weekly newspapers for sale on a first-come basis. They arrive Saturday about 1pm, and are available in the pub. If you really like your paper, get one early, as they do go quickly, and the supply is limited.
Our Post Office provides full postal service, Monday to Friday, from 12:30 until 5:00pm, for the island. It is able to also provide you with most postal items you may want. From here you can mail letters and post cards, buy stamps, money orders, express post envelopes etc.
We can provide limited “office service” to our guests. If you need to receive or send a fax, or copy a document, inquire at the Post Office or the pub. Cost is by the page. If you wish to have a fax sent to you here, please advise us ahead of time to ensure your document is anticipated, and we can then have it ready for you in a timely fashion. Please bear in mind we are not a business depot, but we do try and offer basic emergency or high priority communication services for our guests at the marina. If you have a problem, let us know, and we will do our best to help you solve it. We want you to have a wonderful holiday! For more information on our electronic services, see “electronics”.
What They Say
"New ownership at the marina...awesome staff. Great food (try the crab poppers) with a beautiful patio and equally positive atmosphere inside. Clean and reasonable prices. The marina gas prices are fair. It has a well stocked liquor store and a new and improved store and post office. The marina hosts a market on Saturdays in the summer and often has live music/jam nights. Showers and moorage available.... many great improvements. Now if they can just add a swing set or slide near the 'horseshoe'/ outdoor picnic area with table service there...I might never leave!"
