Marine Fuel Docks

Mayne Island Fuel Dock

Fuel docks are becoming increasingly rare on the British Columbia coast. Its a major consideration for boaters and mariners who need to consider fuel sources as part of their operational plans. Increasing diligence in environmental protection and the costs of installing and maintaining infrastructure has resulted in many facilities being closed. Since this image was originally posted in 2011 the fuel dock at Miner’s Bay on Mayne Island has been completely removed. The closest fuel source is at Montague Harbour on Galiano Island.

Since these images were taken some of these stations have been closed and removed.
