Thanks for the inputs, yeah there's no way we want to pay something like the daily rate at coal harbor. In fact we don't care if we're near downtown. It can be on the outskirts somewhere, just want it to be fairly secure marina.

Are you a yacht club member? If so there are several club marinas in addition to the Vancouver Rowing Club.
Some are in the area you have asked about. Some are outside your immediate area of interest. If you are a member it might be worthwhile contacting them.

Royal Vancouver Yacht CLub, Van RVYC
Vancouver Rowing CLub, Van VRC
Burrard Yacht Club, North Van BYC
False Creek Yacht CLub, Van FCYC
West Vancouver Yacht CLub, West Van WVYC

FCYC, RVYC, VRC are in the immediate area.
The others would require using a bus or a cab.

Mosquito Ck is OK, but their parking can be a hassle. They have a guy manning their boom gate, which is kinda odd these days (make work?), but not a problem. However, even with a valid parking sticker displayed you can find yourself issued a parking infringement notice. Then waste time and effort to sort it out. Its just that kind of place!

Fishermans Wharf doesn't have that many commercial boats in summer, or at least it didn't when I was there. I think they go off and work.... Fabulous location. Harbour ferries from Granville can save a lot of walk time too.

Friends rented a berth privately at Granville Island for an extended period. Remember that people like to cruise during the summer, and many are keen to get some income for their berth while they are away.

(Oh and no i do not have a yacht club membership)
Is it essential that you stay in Vancouver proper? How about south of town or Vancouver Island? It is a pretty quick trip driving up from Seattle, maybe you could drive up and check things out.

Bellingham is on the outskirts, an hour to the south of Vancouver. Slips are available in the summer at a lot less money than Vancouver, including ours while we're in Alaska.

Vancouver BC Marina Recommendations

Another option: Milltown Marina, just up the north arm of the Fraser River and close to the south end Granville Street. Also easy access to YVR.

Can't do Bellingham because this summer our 1-yr wash state cruise permit is expiring. The plan is to move to CA for a few months before this fall when we hope to move the boat to the east coast.
We'd e flying in to Vancouver airport, so any marina within a decent uber ride from the airport. I'd rather not do Sidney or Victoria because accounting for ferries, we'd have to spend all day traveling.

If you are flying in you might consider Sidney, airpoort is YYJ, the Victoria airport. A very short ride to the marinas, good shopping and groceries, good cruising close by. It lets you bypass the hustle at Vancouver if you want.

Milltown is a 10 minute cab ride from YVR airport. No Uber in Vancouver. There’s a grocery store at 67th and Granville, a short trip from the marina.

We much prefer Sidney to Vancouver for travel convenience. Fly up there regularly from AZ. Also Hamrow, have you considered ocean shipping your vessel from Victoria to East Coast US? Raven in Sidney has a subsidiary that manages shipping of many vessels this way.

Thanks Milltown does indeed look like a good option, I'll have a call with them this week!

Thx and yes we considered Sidney but no direct flights from where we are so kind of puts us back into the problem of spending most of a day traveling. And yes we're definitely looking at shipping. We were told to use Sevenstar, but do you have better experience with Raven?

Hamrow,
I second the idea of Raven for your transport. I used them from Northern Europe to Vancouver. They have more frequent sailings than the others from what I could tell and did a real nice job for a fair price.
