John Quay

Visiting pleasure craft only dockage on John Quay is offered along the southern boardwalk adjacent to the Amsterdam BrewHouse at historic Pier 4. John Quay is not a protected marina but a linear boardwalk on the Inner Harbour just outside of Marina Four, used exclusively for larger visiting pleasure craft and ships from approximately 40 feet to 200 feet in overall length. We recommend that smaller vessels dock within one of our two marinas.

John Quay is located south of the CN Tower near the southern boardwalk at berth 248, as indicated on chart #2085 (approximately 43 38.251° N, 79 23.115° W). John Quay boardwalk dockage lies between Marina Four to the east and the entrance to the Toronto Police Marine Unit basin to the west.

Overnight – reservations via the transient link shown in the marine menu through Swell Advantage Marina Software are the preferred reservation method and are accepted for overnight visits only for appropriately sized vessels. Upon receipt your e-reservation will be reviewed and staff will contact you to advise whether it is accepted or denied. Washrooms, showers and coin laundry are nearby. 50-amp power is available on John Quay for three boats using a single outlet each. Check out is 11:00 a.m. on the scheduled date of departure.

Short Term Dockage – for three hours or less (space permitting) for a flat rate fee based on boat size is ideal for a weekday lunch visit at a local restaurant patio, attend a Harbourfront outdoor performance or to pick up supplies from local Waterfront BIA retailers. Slips on the John Quay boardwalk or the south side of E dock on the outside of Marina Four for short term dockage may be available on a first-come first-served basis for three hours or less. However, we advise you to always contact the Marina Office ahead of arrival as outlined below as space can be limited on a busy summer evening or weekend. The pick-up and drop off of groups of persons is expressly forbidden.

ALL VISITORS must follow check-in and check-out procedures by contacting staff by phone or on vhf ch. 68 ahead of arrival to determine slip availability, obtain approval and slip assignment, if not already confirmed in an overnight reservation. Once secure vessel OWNERS must immediately proceed to the Marina Office to fully complete, sign and date a mandatory marina agreement and make the associated payment for the Dock Attendant approved duration of stay. We accept Mastercard, Visa and American Express via the Square no touch payment system.

Pump-Out Information: 416 973 4148

Staff assistance is required – please call the Marina Four Office at 416 203 2620 or VHF ch. 68.

To properly dispose of sanitary waste please use the Harbourfront Pump-Out. This outstanding system, designed by Waubaushene Machine and Welding in Ontario, is sold worldwide.

The Pump-Out is located on the boardwalk at the western portion of John Quay near the Toronto Police Marine Unit at berth 241 on Toronto Harbour chart #2085. Look for the pump-out pedestal near the lime green coloured kiosk.

Upon docking alongside the wooden faced boardwalk please tie up to the large bollards and pipe rail designed to secure pleasure craft. Ensure you fender your vessel accordingly based on conditions and watch for any incoming wake or waves while doing so. Lake water levels may cause the need for additional fendering.

Required tokens to operate the machine can be purchased at the Marina Quay West (416 203 1212) or Marina Four (416 203 2620), or at the Pump-Out Station via a Dock Attendant. Staff at both marina offices can also be reached on VHF channel 68. For recorded information call our Pump-Out info line at 416 973 4148.

Please note: The Pump-Out Station is not staffed. You will require a token(s) and staff assistance. Please contact a Dock Attendant to make arrangements for them to meet you at the Pump-Out. On some days staff may be busy on campus servicing passenger vessels or boat owners in one of our marinas. Please allow ample time for response. Calling ahead is highly recommended.

Each token provides ample time to extract up to 30 imperial gallons of effluent (larger tanks = more tokens). Fresh water is available for tank cleansing, and don’t forget to pick up your ice while alongside.
