  • Respect the marina environment and surrounding marine areas.
  • Refuel at a designated fuel dock only.

  • Discharge sewage, or black water, at a designated pump-out facility only, and never into the Halifax Harbour or into the ocean.
  • Hazardous materials may not be disposed of on Waterfront Development property.
  • Major boat repairs may not be conducted on Waterfront Development property. Small repairs may be carried out in a conscientious manner, so long as litter, liquid or dry contaminants do not contaminate the ground or the water.

  • Make use of onshore washroom facilities while at berth.
  • Retain all wastes onboard vessels while at sea and dispose of it in the appropriate receptacles for compost, recycling and waste upon your return to shore.
  • Respect vulnerable and natural areas in-and-around the Halifax Harbour, and along Nova Scotia’s coastline by taking necessary precautions not to alter, disrupt or destruct any of these areas, or by avoiding them altogether.
  • Do not smoke on wooden structures, walkways, or floating docks.
  • Do not park or use motor vehicles within the marina. Please make use of pay-and-display parking facilities.
