Guide to Green Boating

photo: Michelle YoungGeorgia Strait Alliance’s Guide to Green Boating is a comprehensive, practical guide for recreational boaters on how to minimize our impact while enjoying our cruising waters.

Killer Whale viewing rules have changed since our Guide to Green Boating was last updated.

Please familiarize yourself with the NEW RULES before heading out on the ocean!

The Guide to Green Boating is full of useful tips, including a listing of holding tank pump out stations, reducing pollution from boat maintenance and swabbing the decks, alternatives to toxic cleaning products, and so much more! Please feel free to download and print this publication. Or contact our Nanaimo office to request your copy. We’d be happy to send bulk copies to your club, marina or other organization.

Donations are gratefully accepted to help us in continuing to distribute green boating information.
