Hector Quay Visitors Marina

We have been serving both, local and travelling boaters for over 20 years. Located on the scenic Northumberland Strait, Pictou has a sheltered, fog-free harbour with deep water barrier-free access. En route to Prince Edward Island and other nearby marinas, we are a perfect stopping place or seasonal port. Visit Hector Quay Visitors Marina.
