The Harbour Authority of Cortes Island manages five locations, Cortes Bay, Squirrel Cove Dock, Gorge Harbour Government Dock, Manson's Landing Dock and Whaletown Dock.

All provide safe well-maintained moorage facilities for a wide-ranging group of marine users year round. Each is surrounded by a small community providing plenty of services (except Cortes Bay which has no service) and many things to see and do. Check the our website for more information about each location.

Cortes Bay Dock is located on the southeast side of Cortes Island, near the entrance to Desolation Sound. Nearby is Blind Creek boat launch (Regional District).
