Beacon Harbourside Marina

LAT 43 11.2 N - LON 79 23.4 W
Jordan harbour is a shallow, almost land-locked bay 8 miles east of Grimsby and 5 miles west of Port Dalhousie. Just to the east of the harbour entrance (which is spanned by the Queen Elizabeth Way highway) is a basin created by stone breakwaters. This is a protected spot, with full marine services, for boaters cruising in the southwest corner of the lake.

Approaching Jordan Harbour, the most noticeable landmark is a two-masted vessel described as a replica of a 1500s ship, listing in the west corner of the basin. The opening into the basin is at the northwest corner of the breakwaters. At the west end of the north breakwater is a light (IsoG) on a white tower 12 feet high with a green upper part. The south wall has a starboard-hand daybeacon. Depth in the entrance channel is about 14 feet, with depths of 5 to 14 feet at the marina inside.

Beacon Marina is located on the southeast side of the basin. Watch for the floating barrels as you approach, as they mark hazardous rocks. The marina, which monitors VHF channel 68, has about 100 seasonal slips and will always find a place for transient boaters. The floating docks range from 20 to 60 feet long, and have 5 to14 feet of water. Depth at the fuel dock is 5 feet. Repairs are available through C&J Marine Service.

Gas, diesel, pumpout; power and water at about half the transient slips; washrooms,showers, laundry facilities, ice, gazebo with picnic tables, double-wide launch ramp.You can anchor in the basin, which has a sandy bottom. The Beacon Harbourside Conference Centre behind the marina, has on-shore accommodations and a bar and restaurant.

The Beacon Harbourside Resort, located just behind the marina, offers a menu that includes surf and turf, prime rib, seafood platters, veal parmigiana and pastas, as well as lighter fare. The Beacon Restaurant overlooks the water, with a patio for outdoor dining. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner; Sunday brunch; licensed.
