Lund Harbour is a very busy year-round hub for boats heading to Desolation Sound and the surrounding islands. With an expansion completed in 2011 they have almost doubled the dock space. Mid July though mid August remains extremely busy. Recommend before or after if you prefer less congestion.

It is located at the beginning of Pan-American Coastal Highway 101, and has an excellent historic 112 year old pub, restaurant, hotel, and nearby grocery store, fuel dock, bakery, campground, boat tour operators. Good transient moorage with easy access, taking care to watch the small boat traffic coming out from behind the Breakwater. Lund also has ready access to local trades. The hotel has a small grocery store and liquor store. And the local bakery serves up wonderful cinnamon buns every morning. Lund Harbour is about 15km from Powell River airport, which provides 4 scheduled daily commuter flights to Vancouver, and bus service from Lund to Powell River twice per week.

Reviews for Lund Small Craft Harbour
Small but living large!, 2016-08-04
Captain: , Whittier Alaska Longview WA (609)

We had a great time here. The staff was friendly and helpful. Need to be there early if you want a spot, as it fills fast. We stayed two nights and the moorage fees were very reasonable. The store is well stocked, pay more for chilled beer. The restaurant "The Board Walk" I would not recommend, instead go to the hotel.

Very nice spot, 2015-08-11
Captain: , Point Roberts (30)

The Marina was well managed and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Moorage prices are the lowest we have ever seen. Had lunch at the restaurant on the south side of the harbour, staff were great and so was the food. Very busy place with lots of boats coming and going.

Lund Rock and Roll, 2015-06-17
Captain: , Pt Roberts WA (20)

Spent night here Rocking and Rolling on NW wind. Breakwater insufficient. 3' swell rolling through moorage.

Nice place if you come early or late in the season, 2015-04-17
Captain: , Kirkland, WA (4478)

Lund is a genuine small town with a working harbour. It's a great place to visit shoulder season when there is space at the dock and the pace is a bit slower. Not everything was in full operation but that which was open was a delight. Great backery.

Experience may be dependant on what your expectations are..., 2014-09-17
Captain: , North Vancouver, BC (547)

If you want a high -end fluffy tourist oriented marina, this ain't it. But if you want full access to every amenity offered by this small busy community - you got it.

It's a working marina - commercial boats first, residents boats second, transient boaters are invited to fit in, but if they don't - oh well. Rafting is mandatory at the docks - suggest taking a breakwater slip - it means you have to dinghy in, but that just adds to the charm, and ensures maximum privacy. Guaranteed you'll have he biggest deck going if you take a breakwater slip, a perfect place for deck chairs, a book and a dog...

Yep - there's waves - yep, there's traffic, yep - there's noise early in the morning.

But there's also heart-stoping sunsets, incredible sun rises, the BEST dinghy gunkholing (Copelands), good cold beer, excellent bakery, world class sweaters, great showers, and washrooms, good laundry facilities, and a general store where you pay too much, don't get coddled, but get everything you need every time...

Boat races daily, 2014-08-27
Captain: , Blaine WA (101)

boat races begin at sunrise each day and run until an hour after sunset. Contestants start out in the marina going quite slow but the second their bows cross the 'dead slow' sign it is full throttle racing lead by the water taxi to Savary Island. It seems extra points are awarded to boats who can really churn up a wake for the boats tied to the breakwater - again the water taxi takes full honours. On return all boats must be under full throttle until the bow crosses the 'dead slow' sign. If you like rockin and rollin the Lund breakwater is the place to tie up!!
In stark contrast the pace on land is slow. The bakery is a great place to start and finish that summer novel while waiting for your order. The store is fairly well stocked and the indifferent staff are avaialble when needed. Not a friendly place, not a helpful place just a place that you may have to stop on your trip north.

Too crowded, 2014-02-15
Captain: , Everett (140)

Stopped off for fuel. Public dock is always full as the float docks. Seems to be used up by locals. Avoid this place except for fuel

Decent stopover, 2013-09-27
Captain: , Bozeman, MT (740)

Very few services and not many dinner choices. It's picturesque but doesn't offer much more. Docks were rolling all night long due to insufficient breakwater, wouldn't want to be here in a storm.

Bakery is great though!

Lund Harbour a busy place, 2013-08-29
Captain: , Sidney BC (582)

This is a nice spot but very busy in the summer. Recently stayed there on the way up and back from Desolation Sound. Both times we were relegated at the floats. This is not a bad spot ahd usually does not entail rafting (unlike the main Marina where rafting is absolutely requried). We found the staff at the Harbour very accommodating despite being under high pressure from the plethora of boats coming and going. Given how busy this place is the staff needs to be cut some slack. The store and businesses in Lund are great for boaters and very accommodating to us. It is a great place to reprovision. Moorage on the floating breakwater where we were is the same price as the docks, no power or water thoughl. Washrooms and showers were very clean.

Inattentive, 2012-11-26
Captain: , Bellingham, WA (50)

Answered radio after 3rd request only. Rude and inattentive. Too bad because the bakery is terrific. Won't bother to stop here again.

Good stopover on the way to Desolation, 2012-08-30
Captain: , Seattle (690)

We stopped here to pick up and drop off crew. No reservations, but staff were accomodating when we called ahead. They were there to catch lines for us, as well. Pretty good restaurant, and nice pottery works up the hill from the marina. We did not have quite as good an experience on the way back, when we tied up on the breakwater to drop crew off. We were chided by the wharfinger for not tieing up close enough to one end of the float...

Great place, 2011-08-14
Captain: , Vallejo (161)

Stopped there twice. Great place to change crews as this is the end of Route 101 - Must pay some for long-term parking. People are quite cheery, but can be busy in summer. Often must tie to floating breakwater if you don't want to raft-up, but the view is great from there.

Nice Marina, 2009-03-23
Captain: , Mercer Island, WA (120)

We stopped here on our way too and from Desolation Sound and really enjoyed it. The bakery is first class and there are some other shops at the marina. Decent restaurants for dinner as well. Free wifi is available.

She has her own sense of humor, let's the "captains" control their own destiny. A delightful stop over on the way north.

Misled by Reviews, 2007-01-28
Captain: , DH, WA (1714)

I found the dockmaster to be a joke. Refused to answer radio calls (from four or five vessels) then watched as they found their own moorings and rafted together. Same business at departure time.
Worst mosquitoes outside Northern Ontario.
