Gibsons Marina now flies prestigious international Blue Flag

February 28, 2017

In 2016, the Gibsons Marina received B.C.’s first Blue Flag, the only marina on the western seaboard to receive this honour. Awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education and Environmental Defence Canada, the Blue Flag certifies that the marina meets and adheres to strict standards for water quality, environmental education, eco management, safety, and service.

The Gibsons Marina is a full service 380 slip marina with transient moorage on an “as available” basis, and can accommodate vessels up to 85 ft. long. It also features the closest fuel dock to Vancouver/Horseshoe Bay on the Sunshine Coast, just 30 minutes by boat to Horseshoe Bay. The marina is also at the front door of the future George Gibsons Marine Residences, the newest collection of Sunshine Coast luxury condominium homes.

When the proposed George Gibsons Marine Residences and Resort Hotel opens, the marina may be expanded to allow for additional moorage and larger vessels including a passenger type ferry dock. Imagine boarding a comfortable foot ferry in Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver, and checking into the luxurious George Marine Resort Hotel within an hour, just in time for a relaxing massage at the 21,000 sf George Health and Wellness Centre, dinner in one of the fine hotel restaurants, or a stroll down the new Seawalk past the harbourfronts shops in Gibsons Landing.

Similarly, George Gibsons Marine condominium owners will benefit from the immediate proximity to “as available” marina moorage, the George Health and Wellness Centre, the Boatworks waterfront restaurant, the panoramic views over Howe Sound, and the resort hotel’s concierge service.

The waterfront George Gibsons Marine Residences will offer the finest waterfront condo location in the Vancouver, Howe Sound coastal region, and highly recommended for those seeking a relaxed lifestyle, refined living appointments, and a wide range of four season recreational amenities.
