Water sports Boat launch @ Marriott/Ritz area

The water sports boat launch area located in between the Marriott Stellaris and the new Ritz, does anyone happen to know what is to become of this area or if it is going to be moved?

Thank you very much Aruba Forum contributors! Appreciate all the valuable information, humor and guidance.

If memory serves me correctly the watersports operators had an agreement with the government to move to a spot just south of the Divi Phoenix.

There is a Aruban road between the Marriott and the Ritz. Vela Sports is on the beach at the end of the road but closer to the Marriott. The Boat launch area is a bit closer to the Ritz side but I don't think it is on any part of the Ritz property. I really don't know the answer, but I don't see the Boat launch area moving as a lot of the local boat owners drive down that road to the beach to launch their boats. They then park in that area. I don't see any reason why Vela Sports would have to move either.

I agree with Fsmdude , one sports tent is located between the beach area for the Trade Winds and the Stellaris and a second between the Stellaris and the Ocean Club. The location of the Ritz is no reason for the launch location to change. In fact, would not be surprised to see Vela Sports to set up another tent north of the Ritz to attract the younger people staying at that resort.
