Welcome to Port Dalhousie Pier Marina!

Located approximately 9 miles west of the Niagara River and adjacent to the beautiful old town of Port Dalhousie in St. Catharines, Ontario, Port Dalhousie Pier Marina is considered one of the premier and most popular marinas on the south shore of Lake Ontario and is always filled with boats from ports all over the great lakes.

Our very well serviced location affords gorgeous panoramic views of the city of Toronto to the north, the historical town of Niagara-on-the-Lake to the east and breathtaking, romantic sunsets to the west. As part of the Niagara Region, we are just a few minutes drive away from many world renown wineries, wonderful theaters, the night life of Old Port Dalhousie and many more places that make this area so unique.

So whether you require a boat slip for the season, for a few nights or you are coming in by road, you will love the relaxing surroundings of the marina and enjoy all the fun of boating on the lake. Then make perfect days even better by enjoying dinner and drinks in our Floating Restaurant, or eat outdoors on the largest floating patio on Lake Ontario.

What ever you choose to do, do it in style at Port Dalhousie Pier Marina.

I understand the charges for Slip Rental and/or Storage Fees at PDPM do not include insurance coverage to protect my boat for any loss or damage due to fire, theft or any other cause. I also understand that Port Dalhousie Pier Marina does not provide such coverage.

Vessel Owner Insurance

The Owner represents and warrants that there are insurance policy or policies currently in force which shall continue in force throughout the term of this Agreement in connection with the Ownership and operation of the Boat having limits of not less than $1,000,000 for third party liability including bodily injury or death to any number of persons in any one accident and property damage.


These Terms & Conditions apply to all persons, at all times, who rent slips &/or store their vessel at PDPM. It is your responsibility to read and understand these Terms & Conditions. Failure to do so does not exempt you from any liability to PDPM and is at your own risk. If your vessel remains berthed at your slip or stored in our yard or parking lot for a period longer than 1 hour after initial berthing &/or storing, you will be deemed to have accepted these Terms & Conditions and have agreed to comply with them.

Use of Slip

During the Usage Period, you are entitled to use your slip and all other facilities provided at PDPM.

You can only use your slip for berthing your vessel. Prior to berthing, you must obtain PDPM's permission to berth the vessel you intend to berth.

While berthed at PDPM, your vessel can only be used for personal recreational purposes. You must not use the vessel for commercial activities or to make financial gain without PDPM’s prior permission (which may be given subject to additional terms and conditions, including a requirement to pay a commercial use surcharge).

No part of your vessel, when berthed at the slip, is allowed to extend beyond the physical confines of the slip except as stated in the rental agreement. If this occurs because you have misrepresented your vessel’s dimensions to PDPM, PDPM may either immediately terminate your right to use your slip without compensation, or relocate your vessel to a suitably sized slip and require you to pay additional charges.

The Owner agrees that he/she will not make or permit any unlawful, improper, noisy or otherwise offensive use of the Marina property.

The Owner shall ensure that his/her invitees, crew, family members and guests conduct themselves in accordance with the Rules and Regulations of the Marina. Disorderly conduct by any Owner/Tenant or their visitors that might cause harm to any other person or damage property or harm the reputation of PDPM is prohibited. The Marina shall have the right to amend the Rules and Regulations as it deems appropriate and such amendments shall be effective upon being posted at the Marina premises. The Marina shall have the right to immediately terminate this Agreement if the Owner or his/her invitees, crew, family members or guests fail to comply with the Rules and Regulations.

PDPM will make every effort to contact Owner/Tenant regarding unsafe lines. In the event PDPM deems the Owner/Tenant’s mooring lines to be unsafe, PDPM may replace said lines and the Owner/Tenant shall pay all costs associated therewith.

Sunken Vessels: If any vessel sinks within the Marina, Owner/Tenant must immediately take action to remove the vessel. If Owner/Tenant fails to take immediate action, PDPM will do so and Owner/Tenant shall pay all cost incurred in such removal.
