Welcome to the Richards Landing Municipal Marina – where you’ll always find a safe harbour with friendly staff waiting to serve you.

As St. Joseph Island’s main business centre, Richards Landing offers everything you need to make your stay a pleasant one… shopping, parks, fuel, restaurants, events and friendly folks.

The Richards Landing Municipal Marina is located at the end of the main street, just a few steps from the town centre. This is a full service marina, open seven days a week during boating season with fuel, shower and laundry facilities, and a Boaters’ Lounge.  Slips in the original East Basin have power and water at dockside, shoreline walkway and adjoining grassy area with picnic tables which makes a great place to set up the BBQ.  The West Basin offers seasonal and transient slips with water and power at dockside, as well as controlled access for maximum privacy.

Boaters will find fuel, clean washrooms and family style showers for their exclusive use, pump-out, launch ramp and friendly staff waiting to assist you.  Looking for a shady area? Cenotaph Park with its large shade trees and paved walkways is only a few steps away.

Also located on the marina site is a restaurant, which is a great place to get a hot meal or enjoy a cold beverage.  The view of the St. Joseph Channel, marina and the bridge to the mainland make it one of the Island’s most popular eateries.

The Marina has overnight slips in its west bay and transient slips in its east bay.  Our season is open from the May long weekend and runs through to the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.  Office hours throughout the season are  8 am – 6 pm.  Please contact the Marina office at (705) 246-0254, on VHF channel 68 during the season.  Off season inquiries can be made at the Municipal Office.
