Marina Facilities

Slips

Collins Bay Marina is a 300 slip facility with docks ranging from 18 feet to large enough to handle power and sail boats up to 50 feet long. A thoroughly modern facility, the marina has been continually updated since its inception in 1971 and has earned an enviable reputation with discerning boaters. Harbour Layout

Docks

Every slip enjoys a full finger dock for easy access, simple docking and secure tie up. These floating steel pipe docks are of our own design and construction, are rock stable with a high freeboard and wide walkways that are fully lit for night time safety. Each finger is equipped with four cleats and a corner fender and is wide enough for dock carts to go right to the boat. Near shore fingers are built to accommodate wheelchair access. The unique design, incorporating main dock bridges between floating finger docks, allows fresh water circulation throughout the marina.

Power & Water

Power and water are provided at every slip. The larger docks have marine twistlock outlets with breakers that can be set for either 15 or 30 Amp service. The smaller docks have 15 Amp U Ground outlets with ground fault interruption.

Washrooms

Private washrooms and showers are locked and reserved for our customers. They are meticulously cleaned and checked by staff regularly. Fresh flowers adorn the counters. We continually receive comments by cruising customers that we maintain the best washrooms on the lake. One well traveled boater left us a note saying that they were the best facilities north of Venezuela!

Fuel Dock

Our fuel dock provides convenient access to gas, diesel fuel, ice, soft drinks and engine oils. In addition, we provide a modern, vacuum pump out facility that is fast and efficient. The fuel dock is open at 8 AM every morning and stays open until 6 pm Sunday to Thursday and 7 PM on Friday and Saturday.

Free WiFi

The marina is equipped with high speed wireless internet equipment to provide access by boaters from their slip. The service is provided free of charge to both seasonal and transient boaters.

Safety

Safety of passengers, crew and vessel are every skipper’s first responsibility. We share these concerns with our customers and make every effort to insure a safe environment in the marina. Our staff have all received first aid training, we have well defined emergency procedures, instructions, equipment and communications, we host annual safe boating events, we arrange for boat safety inspections and regularly invite public safety professionals into the marina for familiarization and training.

Security

We live, work and play in Kingston, a healthy, well ordered community that maintains a reputation for quiet and safety, especially in our suburban setting. The site and docks are well lit, the owners live on site year round and there is an involved community of boaters who know each other and look out for others in the marina. The area and nearby parks are patrolled regularly and the marina is home to the E. V. McNeil, the Ontario Provincial Police boat.

Free Parking

A large parking area provides plenty of free parking next to the docks. Please note that the marina is the playground for the sailing school and for the children of our many boating families. We urge you to exercise caution while driving and observe a Dead Slow speed limit.
