V&A Marina Team Wins Blue Flag Status

Our Marina has been awarded Blue Flag Status yet again, making it the third time in a row, in recognition of the high standards of care and management of our marine environment.

“Winning the status, a third time in a row is a huge achievement, and this year being one of only two marinas in the Western Cape been awarded the status even more so after the environmental challenges we recently experienced. Josh, Louis, Mareli, Priscilla, and the Marina team have worked hard through the process to maintain our status, well done to them, as well as our partners including the Two Oceans Aquarium,” says Andre Blaine, Executive Manager: Marine & Industrial.

“We’ve always placed the environment at the center of everything we do and all the hard work we put in together as a team contributed to us receiving this award,” says Joshio Fisher, our Marina, and Canal Technical Manager
