Port Sidney Marina
Cassiopeia is berthed at
Port Sidney Marina in the
heart of the world-famous Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands cruising
area. She is managed by Cooper Boating and available for charter
Port Sidney Marina is located right
at the downtown waterfront in safe, picturesque
Sidney, mere blocks from
shopping and restaurants and only minutes by bus or taxi from the
Airport, the B.C. Ferries

Sidney/Anacortes ferry terminal with service direct to the USA.
The marina itself is a new, spacious,
well equipped marina protected by a solid rock breakwater.
The entire marina floats, including the office and concrete
docks. Port Sidney Marina offers full laundromat and
lounge, plus excellent washrooms and showers. Power,
potable water and wifi are available at the slip. Staying
overnight on Cassiopeia is permitted. Access after hours
is by key card. Canadian cellular networks have towers

to the marina ramp. A selection of additional restaurants and
bars are nearby, within blocks.
Fairway Market, a large
and well stocked grocery store with a good deli and competitive prices is one block away
from our marina. Fairway
permits grocery carts to be taken to nearby boats, making
provisioning very easy.
