Lagoon Cove is located on East Cracoft Island, part of the Broughton Islands, along the BC Inside Passage. It is easily the friendliest marina you can ever visit. Folksy Bill and Jean Barber - the owners since 1992 make sure that every visitors get the royal welcome here at Lagoon Cove Marina.
Every afternoon at 5:00 pm, the marina holds a finger food-potluck at its big room/workshop. For the potluck, the marina provides fresh cooked prawns from their daily catch. When everybody is full and happy, legendary Bill entertains guests with his famous BEAR stories, filling the room with laughter.
Free wireless internet is provided at the workshop, where yacht club burgees hanging on the ceiling and the walls. An extensive collection of books and magazines are available at the bookroom on a 1 to 1 exchange.
Water, Fuel, Shower and laundry are all available at the marina. Bill's famous exercise station makes sure you get in shape. You will be delighted with the whimsical art all around the marina made with recycled materials. Be sure to ask about Bill and Jean Barber's collection of recipes from different boaters.
Location: Broughton Archipelago is located between northern Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia, offshore from Telegraph Cove. Access is by boat only, from Telegraph Cove, Alert Bay, Sointula, and Port McNeill on Vancouver Island.
