At the head of Browning Harbour, in a sheltered cove, the Port Browning Marina offers a safe haven for boats in water that's deep enough no matter the tide. The marina's fresh drinking water, shower and laundry facilities, and convenience store provide for captains and campers who have settled into the area's tent and RV camping sites. The marina's 3,000 lineal feet of wharfage make a solid base for kayaking, hiking, and scuba-diving excursions around Pender Island. The marina's pub and café dish up seafood, pizza, and hearty pub fare after a day of adventures. Port Browning Marina is also a quick walk or slow moonwalk away from the Driftwood Centre, which includes a grocery store, bakery, gas station, and other essentials.
