March 18, 2008 Port Renfrew Marina Report

Greetings everyone:

For our regular and new customers, welcome to our 2008 season. With winter being officially over in 2 days Port Renfrew Marina will soon be into our spring opening of May 1st. If you were a seasonal camper last year please confirm your site for this year before May15th. by phone to Noel 483-1486 or Bud 474-2643 or by e-mail through this site. Failure to do this will mean we are to assume you no longer require your site.

If you are planning to be at the marina on Easter weekend the gate will be open but you must bring your own water, bait and fuel and as well be responsible for taking your garbage to the dump when you leave.

Please be advised that there is a heavy swell warning for this weekend so please be very careful!
