    Canadian Marina’s Heads Up.

    Those of you who travel in the Gulf Islands, couple of FYI’s.

    Salt Spring marina has no docks, nothing. They took old docks out last fall thinking they were all permitted for new ones. Unfortunately the Island Trust didn’t see it that way, no construction has started. Best case they may be back in business Oct/Nov, but maybe not.

    Here a live shot of SS from the Moby’s pub cam. https://saltspringexchange.com/cams/ganges-harbour/

    On the plus side, those of you familiar with Port Browning will remember dock power varied form about 2amps up to nearly 15amps on a good day! Their new docks and power (solid 30amp and some 50amp) along with a wave attenuator are all installed and complete. If you haven’t been give it a try. Great Pub and separate Bistro, along with large BBQ area and swimming pool. Easy walk to market, liquor store etc

    Loosing a major marina in the area has put pressure on the surrounding marina’s and even with this crap weather, we’ve had to book further in advance to ensure a place.

        And a reminder that Ganges Marina has no dockside water for boats. None. Not just no boat washing but no water available to top off your tanks. That’s current as of July 5/6.
