OROVILLE, Calif.- Memorial Day is a day to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice but Memorial Day weekend is known boating, barbecuing, family and friends, but this year - nothing is normal.

Bidwell Canyon Marina has had boats going in and out since it opened back up on May 18th.

Sherry Cook is the Bidwell Canyon Marina Assistant Manager and said one of the measures taken is only letting six people at a time on the shuttle. Previously, up to 15 people were allowed on the shuttle.

“We had a large party and it took us two trips to get them and their stuff out because they had so many people in their group,” said Cook.

Cook says there are ‘X’ marks inside the store and only 12 people are allowed inside at a time.

One boater said he is excited to get back in the water after all of the challenges.

“I waited this long, we're finally able to go back in the water, it was very frustrating because we pay all the fees and everything else involved and we couldn’t even see our boat,” said boater, Bobby Santacruz.

Just last week people weren’t allowed to go to the marina or get to their boats but now people are out on the water celebrating Memorial Day.

“We did some skiing, got after it then did some wake surfing, some boarding, conditions have been great it’s a beautiful day,” said boater, Joe Sorgani.

One boater says Lake Oroville wasn’t packed with people.

“In the morning it was calm, not too many people out, we were out cruising around, some good rides, calm water, it got a little choppy up the north side of the lake but still good cruising, beautiful scenery,” said boater, Jeff Keesling.

Cook said the marina is not currently renting out boats, but they plan to do so beginning July 1.
