Welcome to Gorge Harbour Marina Resort, your gateway to the serene and natural beauty of Cortes Island. Nestled on the cusp of Desolation Sound, renowned as one of the world’s premier cruising destinations, our marina beckons adventurers seeking a tranquil haven amidst nature’s bounty and cultural heritage.

Perched along the tranquil northwest shore of the protected Sa’y’ilh (Gorge Harbour), meaning: “two waters in one”, our marina offers a panoramic vista and a picturesque backdrop for your maritime adventures.

Discover our full-service marina boasting 1800 feet of sheltered docks equipped with power and fuel amenities. Stock up on essentials at our well-appointed General Store and Liquor Store, and take advantage of our onsite conveniences including fuel, propane, laundry, showers, and guest facilities.

Beyond our marina, Gorge Harbour Resort offers a plethora of amenities to enhance your stay, including accommodations, a campground, RV park, pool, hot tub, and food truck offering food options.

But the adventure doesn’t end there! Experience the pulse of island life with our exciting lineup of summer activities, including summer live music performances, rejuvenating free yoga sessions, bodywork studio, enchanting kids’ magic camps, and family movie nights under the stars. Don’t miss out on the vibrant Saturday summer farmer’s market, offering a delightful array of local produce and artisanal goods.

For those craving adventure, embark on guided tours showcasing the island’s natural wonders, from fishing excursions and scenic boat tours to thrilling whale watching and grizzly bear viewing expeditions. Explore the pristine coastline with guided kayaking tours, immersing yourself in the awe-inspiring beauty of Cortes Island.
