From Oak Bay News:
Whale watching and public events in the parking lot are all a part of the plan to inject new life to the Oak Bay Marina.
“It’s always confused me why whale watching was not permitted within our zoning here but it’s a natural spot to operate whale watching out of the marina,” said Brook Castelsky, Oak Bay Marine Group chief operating officer. “Ultimately we’ve always wanted to continue moving into the direction of having Oak Bay Marina as an active destination for locals and tourists.”
Oak Bay Marine Group needs amendments to their lease agreement for both items.
They’ve already added to that market, with bicycle rentals, kayak rentals and rowing rentals all added in the past two years.
