Reviews for Outer Harbour Marina
First Class Service!, 2017-06-04
Captain: , La Salle, MI (70)

The short version: First class service all the way! Great floating docks, very helpful and courteous staff, easy to navigate inside marina (even in high winds), and only a short taxi ride to town.

Details: Perhaps deciding to visit Lake Ontario in June 2017 wasn't ideal. Everything here is flooded, and our intended destionation was closed until further notice. We tried calling just about every marina listed in Active Captain, and only one answered their phones ... Outer Harbor! Not only were they open, but they still had a functioning a fuel dock, power, pump-out and water. We spoke with Keith on the phone, who also checked us in when we arrived. He was very professional and accommodating. It was blowing 20+ kts when we arrived at the fuel dock, and we had plenty of hands to help safely secure us. I wish I could remember all their names, but everyone was welcoming and polite. One particular employee, Cass, (sp?) was particular accommodating during our visit, giving us lots of local info and help along our way. The floating docks were fabulous, and gave us plenty of room to safely navigate in high winds. All the cleats are adjustable, and can be moved to the best spot for your particular boat. We didn't use the bath house, but friends traveling with us thought they were the best they'd ever seen in a marina, mentioning that the glass doors on the showers were a welcome upgrade over the usual marina curtains.

Lastly, during this high water crisis, we were ALL impressed at how much money this marina invested to build a temporary fuel dock and ramps at the bases of all the floating docks to keep their customers safe and dry. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience here, and definitely give this Outer Harbor Marina our highest recommendation.

A Clarification, 2015-09-08
Captain: , Port of Toronto (306)

I have been a resident for five years at OHM and in that time some things have changed at the marina that are not reflected in many of the reviews below.

Fuel is expensive everywhere. If you are price shopping; phone first.

It is still a fact that the staff is first class. That is reflected in the prices we pay. There are two new pavillions with BBQs but gas is not provided.

Yes the washrooms are dated but they are kept clean.

It's tough being right down town and in the middle of nowhere at the same time. This is old industrial land and landfill. As a matter of fact Tommy Thompson park adjacent on the east is still a lanfill site Monday through Friday 8:00am to 4:00pm. You can access it the rest of the time. There is also parkland to the west as well as the Waterfront Trail that will take you to Niagara or Quebec depending on which way you turn.

It is 1.6 kilometers to restaurants, food stores and Canadian Tire. Bring your bike, walk or take a taxi. Consider a Zip car or similar for longer trips. It is slighly further to a beer store and longer again to an LCBO.

The docks have been a lot quieter in recent years since some people were asked not to return. Staff will always take your concerns and act on them right away.

If I had a complaint it would be that some guests ignore the 'No Wake!" signs making it uncomfortable for people at the dock.

Great Experience!!, 2013-05-31
Captain: , Kodiak, Alaska (32)

We spent 2 nights at the Marina Quay West Marina in downtown Toronto, after which we decided to move over to Outer Harbour Marina, which we found much more to our liking (less noise, construction, better power, available wifi, free parking, no wakes and better views of the city).

We found the facilities and staff to be first rate, including 14%u2019 depths, dual 50 amp service, clean power, new docks, fast wifi, a lovely grass park 20%u2019 from our boat (which our dog appreciated) and convenient parking for our rental car (all of which is included in their reasonable dockage rates).

The Dockmaster (Rob) prides himself on running a first class facility and providing his customers with concierge service. Following his lead, the entire staff couldn%u2019t be friendlier, more helpful and accommodating. They successfully create an environment which allowed us to feel like we were %u201Cat home%u201D. They also possess a wealth of local knowledge which they are only too happy to share.

This is one of our favorite marinas and we look forward to returning!

Very noisy on weekends, 2012-05-30
Captain: , toronto (10)

The drunks and their floating boom boxes take over on weekends. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this ain't the place.

I've moored here for seven years - it could be a lovely marina, but fior the noisy drunks.

Outer Harbour, 2011-11-24
Captain: , Margaritaville (355)

Good for locals to keep a boat but why would a transient wnat to go there?
Far from anything that Toronto has to offer and barren, net pretty at all. Can't even get a burger nearby and the bathrooms are not much to write home about either

solitude, 2010-11-12
Captain: , toronto (449)

Nice marina, good people, not much in walking distance from the marina. The parkland is getting better. Run by the Harbour comission.

My Home Port Marina, 2010-02-23
Captain: , Toronto (592)

I have been resident here for 3 years and agree with most of the reviews, except that the area around the marina is now usable for running and biking, etc. Fuel prices were high, but after a protest from some of the residents, the prices are now more in line with other marinas, but still no particular bargain. Major stores and restaurants not far, the marina is pretty quiet on the transient docks. No internet but the good bathrooms. A friendly place but not close to downtown. Probably the best visual property except for the Toronto Island locations. Run by the City Port Authority.

Rustic and VERY far away, 2009-06-30
Captain: , Key West, FL (758)

Mary and her crew are a great group of folks, who will do the very best to make your stay go smoothly. There is some park area and the bath facilities are adequate. But, this is a very remote setting compared to the harbour marinas, if you are interested in taking advantage of being in Toronto. Additionally, once off of the property, we were advised that we could not bike or run around the South part of the island as it was closed for any recreation.

Captain: , Whitby (1653)

Highest fuel prices in Toronto, can be even higher than Ontario Place. Be sure to call ahead for fuel price. Otherwise, a decent marina.

Well run municipal marina, 2007-04-19
Captain: , Wards Is. Toronto (65)

Easy to access, with buoyed channel the whole way in with lots of depth. Able to accomodate 100ft+ yachts. Good security and very clean facility. 10/12 minutes from downtown Toronto.
