Garden Bay is a popular outstation located on the Sunshine Coast in Garden Bay, Pender Harbour, approx. 48 nm NW of Jericho Home Port. With more than two acres of waterlot there is approximately 1,900 lineal feet of moorage space, with shore power and ample fresh water for filling tanks and boat washing. Please be aware of boat length restrictions for moorage. On shore there is a pavilion with a full kitchen, television on cable, fireplace, outdoor barbecue, as well as laundry, showers, washrooms, an ice machine, and free Wi-Fi. Bicycles and kayaks are available for loan.
A five-minute walk to the grocery and liquor store or a five-minute dinghy ride to Madeira Market Place, this station is a favourite stopover to and from Desolation Sound, and a destination for Sunshine Coast fishermen.
Limited parking is available for Members’ cars only and at their own risk. If a Member’s car is to be left for an extended period, please inform the Station Manager and leave the keys with them. Limited space is available for boat trailers and they may only be stored at the discretion of the Station Manager. Campers and house trailers are not permitted.
There are occasionally issues with the RVYC Wi-Fi availability, so the Garden Bay Station Managers should be informed of any issues. If there are many users on the system, internet speed will be adversely affected.
