With QCL Season #25 fast approaching there is a buzz in the air around here!  Of course we’re always excited once we hang up the new calendar and dive headlong into the preparations for another summer in Naden Harbour!  There’s a lot on the go this winter with some very cool projects in the works at the lodge. And we have some exciting developments in the hospitality program being cooked up right here in the office!

The Food Service program is getting a thorough makeover with delicious new menu items coming on stream this summer. Look for new menus in the main lodge dining room as well as at the Bell Ringer and on the Driftwood.  Borrowing a page from our Totem House program, guests staying in the Charlotte House will enjoy some very special meals catered in their own dining room this season.

Our Grady White fleet will grow to 15 vessels this year with the addition of 2 more Gulfstream 232’s.  The superior comfort of these big boats is winning a lot of fans among QCL guests!  On the topic of boats, each year we replace most of the Mercury outboards with brand new units, particularly the 90 and 115 hp models.  The new engines, scheduled to arrive next week, are the latest generation in Mercury 4-stroke technology.  They are based on 150 and 115 hp models that we’ve been testing at QCL over the past 2 seasons.  Hang on to your hats!
