Developer plans Galena Bay marina

Developers of the Galena Shores resort at Galena Bay have applied to provincial authorities for approval of a 30-slip marina and boat launch for their resort.

Developers of the Galena Shores resort at Galena Bay have applied to provincial authorities for approval of a 30-slip marina and boat launch for their resort.

Developer Lindsay Moir says the boat launch and floating marina is intended for use by property owners there, although the ramp and marina could have some public, local use.

Moir said if approved, the private ramp would likely be available for limited use by locals, although he says increased usage in the future would likely lead to the need for the launch to be gated.

The Galena Shores property is still under development.

The plan calls for a floating, removable marina. Moir says it would be in use from mid-May to October, then it would be dismantled and rolled onto shore. No fuelling facility is planned.

The application has just been filed with the province. It is a joint application for the ramp and the marina. “The marina will almost certainly be approved,” predicts Moir. “The boat launch will be more problematic.”

The application notes that some slips could be rented out for an annual fee, but Moir says their intention is not to run a commercial marina, and said it would be likely that property owners at Galena Shores would speak for all the slips.

Pending ongoing regulatory approval, Moir hopes to begin construction work in the fall of this year.
