GORGE HARBOUR MARINA RESORT
For Immediate Release
CORTES ISLAND, February 6, 2023 - UPDATES FOR THE 2023 SEASON, GORGE HARBOUR MARINA RESORT, ON CORTES ISLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA
Dear Valued Guests and Community:
As you may be aware, the Gorge Harbour Marina Resort has been working diligently to address some large-scale infrastructure projects on the property. While maintenance and repairs are always ongoing, work to major systems like, septic, water, and electrical infrastructure are now required. These required infrastructure repairs will unfortunately mean a shutdown to some of our facilities.
For 2023, we are unable to offer camping and RV accommodation at the Gorge Harbour Marina Resort. We are in the process of notifying guests who have booked with us. We know this will undoubtedly impact vacation planning, and although this shut down is unavoidable, guests with 2023 reservations will be offered the opportunity to move their booking to 2024. Pending approvals, a newly envisioned campground with full services will replace the existing sites as part of the larger project.
Sadly, the Floathouse Restaurant is permanently closed and will not reopen. After structural evaluations, the building was found to be unsuitable for further investment and we are currently working through solutions for food and beverage options on-site for 2024. Currently, there are no plans to rebuild the restaurant. In time, the building removal will go out to bids through the Request For Proposals (RFP) process requiring a company with liability and WCB coverage and experience with demolition and salvage.
For 2023, we are planning to have the store and marina open, and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we will need to interrupt services sporadically throughout the 2023 season for repairs.
At the marina, water will likely be available for guests who are moored with us but will not be available as a service to boaters not moored at the marina for 2023. Boat Gas and Diesel will remain open. The road gas pump requires a new pump, and we are proceeding with this replacement soon - please watch for regular updates, as this will also require temporary shutdown of road gas while we make this change.
The Pool and Hot Tub will unfortunately not be open for the 2023 season; however, this will give us the opportunity to ensure we can complete necessary repairs to have this popular amenity open for the 2024 season. On-site showers and bathrooms may be open, but again, this is subject to the timeline of the work being performed to major systems. It is still too early to determine if we can keep this amenity open for 2023.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we complete crucial revitalization plans for this stunning property.
