Eco-certify your marina, harbour, yacht club or boat yard.
Clean Marine BC is an innovative eco-certification program that recognizes marinas, boatyards, and other boating facilities for their implementation of environmental best practices.
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. You can also read about some of our success stories at four of our certified facilities in an in-depth article in Pacific Yachting.
We hope you will join us in achieving and celebrating Clean Marine BC excellence in environmental best practices!

Clean Marine BC Manual
The Clean Marine BC Marine Best Practices Handbook is a valuable resource for all boating facilities (view Table of Contents and introduction). For those interested in certification, the handbook assists marina and boatyard operators in identifying standards to be met and where improvements can be made for your highest possible anchor-rating.
