Shopper Dock Rules and Procedures
Boaters and their guests agree that they will follow all Harbour rules and regulations.
Pets are permitted; however, they must be kept on a leash at all times and may not be left unattended at any time. Excessive barking will not be tolerated. Dogs must not be tied on the docks in any way that may hinder or impede the safety of the walkways. It is the pet owner's responsibility to "stoop and scoop". Pet owners may be refused the privilege of bringing their pets to the Marina if they fail to comply with these rules.
Washrooms and Showers
Washrooms and Showers are located at the Administration Office and are open to the public from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm and are open seven (7) days a week. Showers are accessible.
Laundry facilities are available to transient and seasonal boaters 24 hours a day. They are located at the Administration Office. The machines are coin operated. We encourage our boaters to wash only full loads of laundry and use eco-friendly products.
In order to respect the close proximity of neighbours, an 11:00 pm to 7:00 am noise curfew has been implemented. Music and loud voices must be turned to a low level as to not bother any sleeping boaters. Please exercise good judgement and consideration at all times.

Clean Marine Program
Whether you take to the water by power, sail or paddle, the pleasure we all derive from boating is based on our enjoyment of the pristine waters and scenic shorelines. The Town of Midland is now a proud member of the Clean Marine Program and has achieved a Gold Eco-Rating. Boating Ontario member marinas enroll in the Clean Marine Program to ensure that their marinas are following environmentally sound practices that cover all aspects of marine operations from fueling to waste oil, and paper recycling, energy, water conservation and more for the protection of our our waterways for all to enjoy today and for future generations. Our Midland Harbour has adopted Environmental Best Practices as a policy and way of doing business, giving you the opportunity to choose the certified, most environmentally responsible homeport for your boat. Also, if you're cruising in unfamiliar waters, the Eco-Rating flag lets you choose a destination marina knowing they are doing all they can to preserve our lakes and rivers.
The Ontario Marine Operators Association is part of a much larger group numbering over twenty eight entities called the Clean Marine partnership. These partners consist of marine industry professionals, boaters and anglers associations (representing 1 million boaters) dedicated to leaving Ontario's waters in better shape that we inherited them. Future generations are counting on us to be successful.
