This community marquee marina is located where the Somass River meets the Alberni Inlet.  Our docks at Clutesi Haven are snugged within the tidal fresh water of the Somass River directly along the driving route for visitors travelling to the world-famous resort destination of Tofino, BC and Pacific Rim National Park. This marina is a major hub for the local tourism sector in the Alberni Valley. The history, reputation and community pride of this facility were the primary factors that led to the community achieving the designation of “Canada’s Ultimate Fishing Town” by World Fishing Network.

The Marina offers slips and side-tie berths for up to 165 vessels, 28 of which are covered boathouses. All berths have access to hydro and potable water. This is our most popular location for trailered boats because of the river access and four-lane boat ramp. We offer daily, weekly, monthly and annual moorage. Moorage reservations are strongly recommended and over-night parking is available.  The fishing is fabulous in most seasons and Clutesi Haven Marina is home to the oldest active fishing club in the Alberni Valley: the Tyee Club. We invite guests to use our fish cleaning station and weigh scale to take a picture of themselves with their trophy catch.

Shopping, dining and entertainment are within walking distance. During the spring and summer months, travelers enjoy the food truck vendors that typically are located at Clutesi Haven. This is a favourite place for sitting at picnic tables at the river’s edge, watching wildlife in the estuary. This is the perfect place to enjoy nature, including the possibility of bear watching across the river, with abundant comfort amenities a stroll away.
