The Broughtons and Johnstone Strait
Logging operations have been removed from the outer bay in Potts Lagoon.
In 2018, a new floating dock (160 feet) was installed in the north cove of Village Island; tie-up is by permission, call the band office at 250-287-2955. Access to the island is $20/person. Trails have been cleared and there are plans to move a manufactured home on shore for the Watchmen. Details regarding the Watchmen Program are being developed.
Improvements are continuing at Lagoon Cove Marina with a plan to replace and upgrade sections of its docks on a continued basis.

Port Harvey Marine Resort
Fisherman’s Landing & Lodge (previously known as Morgan’s Landing)
The new owners have this upscale resort ready for the coming season with all new docks, a restaurant, and other services. Call ahead for guest moorage reservation requests.
Dent Island Lodge
Underwent a massive renovation over the winter. The marina is now open again and the Lodge will be open for dinner and other services after July 1. We will have an update in July after we visit the NEW Dent Island Lodge.
Is not open even though there are old signs on the water declaring it is open. The previous owner died about 18 months ago and vandals damaged the docks and building. We were told a new owner has purchased the property with plans to arrive in July and begin work to open the docks and restaurant at some point. We will keep you advised.
50 amp power is now available on their docks. When approaching the marina from the north on Mayne Channel, note the rig in the water for water power generation system. It is lit and noted on current charts. For those traveling with outdated charts and old chart chips in their chart plotters, please be on the lookout for this obstruction in the water as you approach the marina.
Blind Channel Resort
Alex Barton is the new head chef at Blind Channel Resort. He grew up with German cuisine and has a passion for fresh local ingredients. Happy Hour at the Resort is between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m., starting July 1st. Look for home-made pretzels, drink specials, and a variety of wine pairings. Musical guests are lined up for the summer months, for a schedule go to www.blindchannel.com; the gift shop continues to carry works by local artisans and other unique gift items.
Jennis Bay is installing an additional 150-foot float for the 2019 season. It has been reported that the shake lumber camp floats and buildings are being removed.
There was no sign of activity when we passed Cordero Lodge in the spring of 2019. It does not appear that the new owners of Cordero Lodge will be opening the facility any time soon despite a large sign on a tree that says it is open. It is still best to slow down when passing to avoid any further damage to the docks due to boat wakes.
