Shearwater Amenities

SHEARWATER’S LOCAL SERVICES

We are much more than a fishing lodge, marina, and a wilderness safari destination.  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 can get you almost anything you need.  Our retailers stock many common items found in any mainland stores so your are in safe hands.

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