Dana Point RFP Updates  

The Orange County Board of Supervisors has once again postponed consideration of the Dana Point West Marina management RFP. It will not be considered at the May 22 Supervisors meeting as planned. At this time no rescheduled date has been provided.  We have been assured by the Supervisors' office that this delay is the result of their continuing desire to give fair and thorough consideration to the four bidders, and they require additional time to review and validate the details of their proposals.  We will continue to follow this matter closely and will pass along information as it develops.


We also owe you a correction to our 5/17 Boaters Blast on holiday parking: On Memorial Day weekend, 80 customers of Catalina Express will be permitted to park in boater parking, split evenly between the east and west cove lots. Last year 80 vehicles were permitted in the east cove lot. If successful, this plan will be repeated on the Labor Day holiday. However, our boater parking lots will indeed be reserved strictly for boaters on the 4th of July. We apologize for our earlier error. 


Enjoy your weekend!
