Welcome to West Coast Floatation Systems

West Coast Floatation Systems is a locally owned and operated marine systems manufacturer conveniently located in beautiful Cowichan Bay on Vancouver Island, BC Canada. We specialize in design and fabrication of custom aluminium, steel and concrete installations in and around water ways and our quality standards are among the most rigorous in the industry.

What we offer is a unique opportunity to work hand-in-hand with one company from start to finish. While we help you get the required lease applications and permits, we team up with engineers and outside consultants to bring the design together. Once fabrication is completed, we can safely install any system we build on land or water.

Above all else we value our environment and operate within local, provincial and federal regulations for best management practices when working around water. All machines on sites are equipped with emergency spill kits and use environmentally friendly oils.
