The yard is open from 8 am until 8 pm daily, 7 days a week, and after hours yard customers may enter through a locked gate.
Stones Boatyard is one of the cleanest facilities on the waterfront in BC. We’re proud to be environmentally friendly and we work hard to comply with Environment Canada’s “Best Management Practices” for boatyards. Together with our customers we aim to reduce and even prevent the contamination of our aquatic environment.
We give priority to emergency haul outs for boaters in distress and those brought to our dock by the RCMSAR, the Harbour Patrol and towing companies with serious problems. We also have a small tow boat which we utilise in our local marina to deliver boats to or from the travelift dock. See our Boat Yard Rates page for relevant charges.
Amenities nearby include bed and breakfast or hotel accommodation, boat brokers, kayak rentals, supermarkets and shopping malls, banking facilities and plenty of coffee shops! The yard is surrounded by three pubs and restaurants offering a variety of drinks and cuisine.
