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
Port Harvey docks are available for moorage at boaters’ own risk; no power, no water, no store/restaurant.
The installation of new concrete docks with 600 feet of side-tie guest moorage has been completed for 2018 (family run business as in previous years).
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. The new news is more personal but still fun. Eliot Richter and Agnieszka were married on May 5. The service took place on the water in the middle of Discovery Channel. The happy couple turned right around and completed getting Blind Channel Resort ready for their summer guests. Wish them well when you stop in.
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 For those traveling with outdated charts and old chart chips in their chart plotters, please be on the lookout for this obstruction in the water as you approach the marina.
