Shearwater Amenities


At Shearwater Resort & Marina, we offer a full selection of amenities for your visit. We are part of a thriving community on the Central Coast of BC and would be happy to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our retailers stock many common items found in any mainland stores.

While you’re here, stop in and check out the local pottery, jewelry and prints we have for sale. Don’t forget to ask Lon in the Grocery store for some tips on local hikes or specialty craft beers!


Stop by the Grocery store, Liquor store and Post Office at the heart of Shearwater grounds. We have a 1500 square foot store that stocks a very wide selection of brand-name foods, ice, and supplies.

The liquor store is found right inside the grocery store and carries a wide selection of alcohol, including beer and wine on the central coast. Our pricing is on par with other provincially regulated liquor shops. Talk about convenience!


Shearwater Marine Group’s freight department, Sea Island Terminals offers a scheduled freight service, including cooler and freezer service, from Richmond B.C. to Port Hardy B.C. From our Port Hardy terminal, we transfer goods to the ‘Central Coaster’ freight ship and travel the inside passage up to Hartley Bay and all points in between.

You will find the Canada Post outlet & Gift shop just inside the grocery store to the right. Any one of the grocery store staff can assist you with any postage questions you may have.


Shearwater Marine Group’s freight department has the ability and capacity to get what you need from Vancouver or Port Hardy to Shearwater on Denny Island.  The Central Coaster Captain and his crew will navigate the inside passage to bring your items safely to you and as quickly as possible.  Contact one of our offices to discuss your freight needs.

Fuel Dock Convenience Store

Our newly upgraded on-water fuel station now features a retail convenience store that is stocked with a variety of staple items including cold drinks, candies, bait, block ice, gifts and more. Above the dock, we have a helicopter landing pad with three jet fueling stations. AV fuel is available at the main fuel pad meters, which is closest to the dock ramp. We also service AV & Jet off the floating fuel dock and of course offer competitive pricing within our remote location on the Central Coast. Potable water is limited in the summer but can be utilized based on availability.


Shearwater Resort & Marina is a thriving resort community on the Central Coast, 95km west of Bella Coola, on Denny Island where travelers will find all their hardware and marine services met. With over 70 years of supplier experience on the central coast, we likely provide an ideal solution for almost anything that you might imagine or need.

*** Full selection of marine charts and a new and improved fishing wall ***

The Marine & Hardware store offers an incredibly wide selection of quality products. We have the best selection of both Salmon and Halibut fishing tackle available, offer electronics sales and service on the central coast.

In the unlikely event that we don’t have exactly what you need, your item can be special ordered in and shipped by air freight.  Delivery times to the area are generally one to two days.

Shearwater Marine is a licensed Volvo-Penta Sales & Service centre.
