Salt Spring Marina - Under Construction

*** UPDATE 4****

Salt Spring's 3rd update below had a forcasted deadline of 10/11, but the webcams do not show the marina being complete. QCYC researched their website and was unable to find a relevant updates on when they expect construction to be complete. Consider the marina closed until further notice. 

 

*** UPDATE 3 ***

Thank you for your patience and support during the long lease amendment process. We are extremely pleased to inform everyone that we now have all the approvals necessary!

We will begin dredging by July 23. Our builder, Island Marine Construction, has given us a construction schedule showing completion by October 11, 2019. Our website will show progress live via webcam! https://saltspringexchange.com/cams/

So now is the time to sign up for our opening day weekend, which just happens to be Thanksgiving Day weekend. Lesley Cheeseman, our dedicated marina manager for the past 30 years, will be taking moorage reservations by the day, by the month, for the entire winter, and for year-round annual moorage! We will also be delighted to host your rendezvous, on a space available basis.

Yours very truly, Lesley, Jerry and Bonny

** UPDATE 2 **

Thank you for your continued patience and support. As we are working through the issues with the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development to secure an amended Water Lot Lease for the next 30 years, we do not yet have permission to build or operate in any way within the lease area. Once we have that permission, our builder has estimated that it will take 60 days to dredge, drive piles, and install the docks. At this point it appears that an October 1 completion date might be possible. If so, we will welcome boaters who wish to take advantage of the protection of our new marina during the winter storms.

We will strive to inform you of any change in this schedule, and hope to see you when our new marina is finally open.

We greatly apologize for an inconvenience this may have caused you.

Kind Regards,

Lesley Cheeseman, General Manager

*UDPATE 1*

 

Dear QCYC,          

         

We are extremely sorry to tell you that we must cancel all moorage reservations for the months of June and July.

We are eagerly awaiting approval by the Ministry of Forest Land and Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (FLNRORD) to begin installation of our new docks, so we will not be opening the Marina until at least August 1. We will strive to inform you of any change in this schedule, and hope to see you when our new marina is finally open.

We greatly apologize for this inconvenience.

Kind Regards,

Lesley Cheeseman, General Manager
