Clean Marine BC is an innovative, voluntary eco-certification program that recognizes marinas, boatyards, and other boating facilities for their environmental best practices. Recreational boaters can also access the Clean Marine BC Clean Boating Program to find facilities, services and information that support minimizing the impacts of recreational boating on the environment.

Eco-certify your marina, harbour authority, yacht club, fuel dock or boatyard.

Enrollment in the award-winning program starts with a simple commitment to the Clean Marine BC policy and provides immediate benefits as we guide you through the straightforward process to certification. Certification is valid for 3 years, and continual improvement and innovation is encouraged.

Together we have celebrated many success stories with our Clean Marine BC certified facilities, including our pilot project certification in 2008, and awarding the first top rating of 5-anchors to False Creek Harbour Authority’s Fisherman’s Wharf.

We hope you will join us in achieving and celebrating Clean Marine BC excellence in environmental best practices!
