Quick Facts: 

Fishermans Wharf also includes the Discovery Fishing Pier, Maritime Heritage Centre, Campbell River Museum, and summer Pier Street Farmer's Markets (on Sundays from May through September).

Fishermans Wharf, located near the heart of downtown Campbell River, was home to 235 port vessels and had more than 80 vessels on its waitlist for moorage. There was a lack of space for new marine businesses to develop and an urgent need for facility upgrades. The space constraints limited visitor capacity and reduced marine tourist traffic to the community.

To expand and improve the Wharf, the Campbell River Harbour Authority undertook a harbour revitalization project. This added 960 lineal feet of floats and 300 feet of licenced docking area for transient boaters. Shower and washroom facilities were relocated in the harbour office building, the floats in the south harbour renewed and electrical upgrades performed. Additionally, a storm water management facility was built that included a catchment basin for rain water runoff and an attractive rain garden.

The expanded and improved Fisherman’s Wharf, completed December 2012, provides safe and secure berthing for larger ships, commercial fishing vessels, other commercial boats and pleasure craft. There is now enough moorage for home port vessels, space to welcome visitors and room for entrepreneurial growth. The increased vessel traffic brings more business to Campbell River’s Pier Street district and the local marine businesses have expanded their fleets.
