Offering a first-class boat launch, Rusty's Coulee Marina is the ideal beginning to your Lake Diefenbaker exploration. Whether it be fishing, wakeboarding, tubing or just plain cruising, Rusty's is the place to get on the water.
Need some fuel for your watercraft? We've got it. Need some bait? Got that too. How about a fishing license? We offer those as well ... you name it, the marina store more than likely has it.
Offering assorted tackle, baits, and marine supplies (including boat batteries!), the store also has a variety of convenience store items including soft-serve ice cream, firewood and ice for sale during the summer.
The marina's schedule has yet to be finalized for the 2017 season, so the listings below may be inaccurate. Once the season opens, you may call the marina directly at (306) 353-4449.

Most days, launching and retrieval of boats at Rusty’s Coulee Marina is simple. However, on long weekends or when the weather is perfect and the lake inviting, the launch area can become so busy that both launching and retrieval are stressful and confusing. This information is provided to make your launch and retrieval experience at Rusty’s Coulee Marina a more pleasant one.
When the launch area is filled with boats waiting to pull out of the water, please consider the following:
|Slip Size||Seasonal Fee|
|18.5' - 24'||TBD|
|24.5' - 29'||TBD|
|29.5' - 35'||TBD|
Payment for seasonal slips must be made before June 16th, 2017. NO EXCEPTIONS. If your payment is not received by June 16th, your slip reservation will be surrendered.
If you are unable to come to the Marina before June 16th, please download, complete and return the Boat Slip Permit Application form. For payment options, please call the Marina Store at (306) 353-4449 during hours of operation or the Park Office at (306) 353-4604.
Please Note: this year there is a section on the form that asks if you have your Pleasure Craft Operator Card. This is your proof of competency and it is required by Transport Canada. If you don’t have Proof of Competency – Get It!
When available, the rates to rent a slip on a non-seasonal basis are as follows, regardless of slip size.
