Minnehaha Bay Marina

The Minnehaha Bay Marina will remain closed as per provincial orders; however, the boat launch will be available for use – at no cost and with no services. Parking at this location is limited. 

All Other Public Launches 

All other public boat launches in West Nipissing will remain open to provide water access for property owners to check-up on their cottages. At this time, docks will not be installed until the provincial orders have been lifted.
Residents are advised that access to launch is subject to change if new orders are implemented, or if residents are not following public health recommendations.
Physical distancing and restrictions on groups of more than five people remain in effect on the waterways. It may be difficult to apply these measures in a boat, but we urge boaters to be cautious and ensure physical distancing is respected at all times.
Mingling and social gatherings at boat launches are to be avoided. We aks boaters to be respectful when other are using the launch, and to remain in their vehicles.
