Boat Launch



The final work on Phase 2 of the Boat Launch Upgrade project is now complete and the launch is again open to the public, just in time for the Paul Bentley Memorial Fishing Tournament.


A soft opening of the launch was held today (July 22, 2016) at 4:30 pm.  Grant funder representative from Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT) CEO Janine North, and members of the Village Council were in attendance to watch Billy Yovanovich, Chief Councillor of Skidegate Band Council launch the first boat from the new ramp.
