Boat Launch Opens at San Diego

By Karen Robes Meeks

Port of San Diego on Tuesday celebrated the new and improved Shelter Island Boat Launch Facility, considered one of California’s busiest boat launches.

Largely grant funded, the $9.6 million project includes a wider maneuvering area in the facility’s basin, longer boarding floats, a public walkway with areas for viewing and new signs and lighting.

“This state-of-the-art boat launch facility will allow more people to safely and quickly get out and enjoy our San Diego Bay,” said Garry Bonelli, Chairman of the Board of Port Commissioners. “The Shelter Island Boat Launch Facility handles more boaters than any such facility in the entire State of California. It’s one of many projects being added to jumpstart the port’s ‘renaissance on the bay.’”
