Located on Notre Dame Bay, which was described by Deanne Peters, in Canadian Yachting no less, as the “Caribbean of the North” the town of Lewisporte has developed into a popular yachting destination for anyone cruising Newfoundland’s north coast. The Marina is operated by the Lewisporte Marina Administrative Authority but the focal point for recreational boaters is the Lewisporte Yacht Club (LYC).With facilities overlooking the docks including laundry and showers there is plenty of space for socialising with the local sailors. The LYC maintains moorings in several locations in the Bay of Exploits and Notre Dame Bay has dozens of protected anchorages
The marina has 170 berths, including fixed and floating docks. Vessels up to 100 feet long and 12 foot draught can be accommodated. Docks have WiFi, water and fuel is available. Yard facilities include a 30 ton travel lift, a 40 ton Econlift and a large storage building. The marina manager is Todd Manuel. For billing information, vessel storage, yard work, boat launching/haul-out, reserving the shed, or questions about the facility, contact the LMAA at 1-709-535-3633 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Marina staff monitor VHF channel 68.
