Tymac Marine also operates from here, and the VPD and Port keep boats in boat houses here now. To the left is Canfisco (Canadian Fisheries Cooperative) which still exists today. All the docks to the right are long gone, replaced by Crab Park, complete with a rather natural looking (but entirely man-made) sandy beach.
