We know we’re the first choice in marine construction services, but our clients are the true testimonial. Read what they have to say…
This company is truly outstanding in every way. From my initial contact to the job completion, everything went smoothly and the final product was exceptional. The communication with Mike and Ashli was the best one could expect. The crew was absolutely wonderful to work with, very talented and very seasoned and experienced pros. The job crew chief was incredible. He has the knowledge and the skill to do anything and he ran the crew like a fine oiled machine. The job was finished in 7 days, much quicker than what I thought it would take. The property was left in a very clean and excellent condition. They are very competitive and fair in their pricing. Honestly I feel as if we got a Mercedes job for the price of a Chevy. I did quite a bit of research before selecting them because of the size and complexity of the job. Their reviews are the best of any company, they’ve been in business for a long time, and they know what they are doing. I couldn’t be more pleased. Thanks Mike and hats off to you and your staff.

I want to thank you and the crew for doing a great job on the seawall. We would definitely recommend Gibson Marine to others. My wife and I are very pleased with the outcome. Thanks again for the great work and service you have provided. If we need a dock built in the future, we will definitely go with your company.

I could not be more satisfied with the new seawall that was done by Gibson Marine. It seems like it becomes tougher and tougher to find people whom you can trust – people who do exactly what they say they will do. Because I am often in Michigan, it was great to work with Mike. With Mike in charge, I knew that there was someone at my home while I was away that was making sure everything got done on time and with the highest quality. My home is in Belleair Beach and I recommend Gibson Marine without hesitation.
Stephen Afendoulis, Belleair Beach, FL
We engaged Gibson Marine Construction to build a dock deck and lift for our beach home. We were thrilled with their attention to detail, fairness in pricing, and follow up. It is very hard to find companies that follow thru on what they tell you, up front. Mike and his team from Gibson Marine were great to work with, from start to finish. We highly recommend them.
Ron and Lynn Rosati, Clearwater Beach, FL
As president of our condominium association in Largo, my experience in dealing with Mike and Eric has been exceptional. Having some experience in seawall construction for my Yacht Club in NY, I was tasked with overseeing the upgrade to our condo’s seawall. Mike and Eric explained the differences in construction methods very clearly. They took our bid documents and provided the best quote compared to three other companies. Their workforce was quick, neat and efficient and adhered to our specs completely. The finished product met all our engineer’s requirements and looks fantastic. I would not hesitate one moment, to recommend Gibson Marine for a seawall project.
Paul Schlechter, DC, President Imperial Point Condo VI Assoc.
This was easily the most pleasant experience I have ever had with a contractor. From the very first meeting with Mike, I sensed a degree of professionalism and pride in the projects they have completed. We are very pleased with the finished product and highly recommend this company for all of the services they offer.

Gibson did an excellent job in explaining, both verbal and in writing. The steps and outline provided was helpful in following the progress through completion of our sea wall. The most important part was never mentioned, was how precise the crew had demonstrated such perfection and paying attention to such detail. No matter how small to the most challenging obstacles were handled by the crew, they were very professional. The weather was at it’s most extremes through the week, no short cuts or calling it quits with this crew. To see how the transformation had taken place and how the view looks from the house is amazing. Most of all, knowing how the sea wall has been constructed like a tank to in sure the safety and value of our property.
Sandy and Phil Hollabaugh, Tarpon Springs, FL
Gibson Marine performed at or above my levels of expectation. From start to finish, they communicated the challenges, the possible variables and the reasons for taking a certain direction. The crew worked tirelessly to do the job right and within a timely manner, all while maintaining a eye on keeping the existing conditions as unaffected as possible. Kudos to Eric, Mike and the crew.
Vince Ionata, Dunedin, FL
Working with Gibson was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Mike and Eric were professional, friendly, honest and there for us every step of the way. One of them came on-site every day to check on progress, see what needed to be done, handle any questions or problems that arose and made sure the work was being performed to their highest standards. We cannot say enough about their incredibly hard-working crews. They were very friendly, showed up every day on time, worked their butts off on very long (and sometimes very cold) days and absolutely could not have been better. There were four of us in a row getting new walls and we could not be more pleased with how it looks, how it was installed, how every detail was handled and with the fact that we got more than what we paid for. Every speckle of sod was replaced, every walkway repaired, every fence fixed, a step was put in on our docks for those of us whose were now very low and any other thing we requested was done, no questions asked. Gibson gets an A++ and we will certainly be using them again without hesitation for any other needs we might have in the future.
Abby & Jay Becker, Redington Beach, FL
I give Gibson Marine an A+! Their quality of work was outstanding. Every day, they showed up on time and completed the project on schedule and within budget. I would recommend them to anyone. We contacted several companies and they were not only willing to do the work quickly but they offered the best pricing.
Rick & Deena Bennett, Palm Harbor, FL
Gibson’s work was, in a word, superb. We recently went through a remodel of our home and had a bad experience with the contractors. The last part of the project was the backyard and it was refreshing that the construction crew and team at Gibson were excellent to work with and did beautiful work. We are excited about our new back yard! I would recommend them to anyone.
W. Waters, St. Petersburg, FL
The work you and your company performed for us was outstanding. We couldn’t be more pleased with our choice in selecting Gibson Marine to replace our residence dock and our commercial dock at the Wharf. As a business person, it’s a real pleasure to ‘get what you pay for.’ I can assure you I will go out of my way to recommend your company and please do not hesitate to use us as a reference.
Bob & Emily Bell
Gibson Marine is an outstanding company in many ways. Their customer service is wonderful. Calls and emails are answered promptly. Requests for estimates are completed in short amount of time and reviewed clearly and precisely. There is strong work ethic among all employes of Gibson Marine. During completion of our new seawall, the crew remained the same through the entire project and they worked long days, the owner, Eric Swagger or the production manger, Mike Mittler visited each day and the wall was completed on schedule. You will not find a better, more reliable company to do business with than Gibson Marine!
Sally and John Day, Clearwater Beach, FL
Every now and then a company comes along and lives up to the quality and service that it promises. Gibson Marine was one of three local companies that we were considering to install our new seawall. We initially chose Gibson because their consultant Mike Mittler was knowledgeable, timely and would actually answer his phone when ever we called. The process from start to finish was smooth, timely, exactly as promised and with very little disruption to our home or neighbors. Our sea wall is now complete and we are very happy with Gibson Marine and our beautiful new seawall.
Kevin & Debbie Chadwick
Ours was a 50 year old residential canal-based seawall replacement. From initial contacts with several firms in the area Gibson Marine presented the most reasonable alternatives. Our confidence in them was rewarded by their professional know how and project follow through from beginning to completion. The installation staff attended to design detail and care of the property as work was carried out and completed.
Madeira Beach, FL
From the time I moved into my home, knowing I had a failing seawall, to the day Gibson Marine completed the project, I have never felt as safe as I do now. If there was a higher score than A+, they’d get it!
L. Pappas, Indian Rocks Beach, FL
We are quite pleased with the results of this project. Gibson helped us design the seawall to protect our property and to prevent erosion. The retaining wall was built very quickly and the residents have done nothing but compliment Gibson’s work. The team was cooperative and responsive throughout the process and we are very satisfied with the product, construction quality and service.

Crystal Bay Travel Park Seawall and Dredging Committee met with Eric and Mike of Gibson Marine Construction in April of 2010. Our project consisted of replacing approximately 285 feet of existing seawall, in our waterfront community. They developed a plan that allowed us to replace this with a new vinyl seawall, cap, and tiebacks, also removing and replacing davit pads as ordered. They were willing to work within our time frame (as most of our homeowners are gone for the summer) and the job site was very restricted with the homes being located very close to the seawall. This project started on time in July and they finished within the time frame as contracted.
Both the job itself and the clean-up process was quite labor intensive and the whole crew put forth an effort above and beyond our committees’ satisfaction.
It is the intent of this committee to complete this on-going project as our budget will allow, and we would not hesitate to work with this contractor, Gibson Marine Construction in the future.
Crystal Bay Travel Park, Palm Harbor, FL
After researching and interviewing three local marine deck/dock installation companies, I chose Gibson Marine Construction. While any of the contractors could have completed the requested project according to my specifications, only Gibson came in and listened to what I wanted and how I wanted the job done. Their insightful advice coupled with the best overall pricing for quality material and labor made my choice rather easy. In short, these guys have got it down to a science and it shows in their approach and delivery of a quality project.
M. Toscano, Clearwater, FL
My experience with Gibson Marine Construction was positive and rewarding since the project was completed ahead of schedule and within budget. Friends, relatives, and neighbors who saw our yard and retaining wall before, and after your company renovated it, are impressed by the changes and how well the project turned out. It has now been almost a year since completion and the wall with associated drains and landscaping have fulfilled my expectations for low maintenance and have added an attractive upgrade to our home. Thank you again for your expertise and professionalism.
I was referred to you by a fellow neighbor who was also having you do some work at his home in Village of Lake Tarpon. Gibson installed new yard drains at the rear of our home for excess rainwater. We needed it to properly drain into the canal so it didn’t damage our seawall. Your work was exactly as outlined, advised and expected. The work was done in a timely and professional manner and very fairly priced.
T. Paine, Palm Harbor, FL
I’m very happy with the new sea wall constructed by Gibson Marine. Got a great new wall at a very competitive price! They are on time, keep you informed, and best of all no mess when they’re done. Gibson Marine delivers, I highly recommend them.
John Ferrell, Indian Rocks Beach, FL
I wanted to extend my appreciation to those involved in the construction of our new dock on North Clearwater Beach. From the very start a thorough and comprehensive estimate was given that was based on the vision that was discussed regarding the design. Mr. Mittler obtained the necessary permit that was no simple task due to extenuating circumstances however Mr. Mittler successfully came through. The dock was completed in a timely manner yet not rushed as evident through the solid construction and meticulous attention to detail. Throughout the entire process Mr. Mittler and his crew were graciously accommodating as we had revised the design even as the dock was under construction. Mr. Mittler and his crew made the requested revisions without hesitation. Gibson Marine was highly recommended to us by a good friend who also had a dock built by Gibson. I would recommend without hesitation Gibson Marine. Thanks again!
Demetri Kousathanas, Clearwater Beach, FL
I have now used Gibson for three projects. They repaired a seawall for me, built a new sea wall and now a new dock. I have found them to be very responsive, customer focused and reasonably priced. I have recommended them to others and would estimate to do so in the future.
I was very happy with Gibson Marina my boat lift was installed with excellent workmanship and quality materials I would recommend them to anyone.
Found the house we didn’t think we could find but “Although I absolutely love the house, I can’t stand the “boulder”. The “boulder” being a badly cracking, uneven, ugly retaining wall with concrete ground cover. Enter Mike Mittler: “You just need to replace what’s here with a new seawall.” Mike recommended a structural engineer who immediately put us at ease and then designed a visually attractive replacement. Gibson presented a competitive bid and after award moved immediately to get equipment, supplies and a crew on site. A great crew with great knowledge and an unbelievable work ethic. The “boulder” disappeared and the new seawall took its place. And the appearance change cannot be overstated; what a fabulous change. Mike, Eric, the crew; we could not be more pleased. Gibson Marine is an excellent organization.
Thank you for helping and I compliment you for a great job on the wall – I’ve had great compliments from the neighbors. If you ever want a referral I will joyfully give you one – and you have great personal relations.
P.S. I have the best wall!!
Maria A., Largo, FL
We are writing to tell you how pleased we are with the new sea wall construction
that you recently completed at our home. We postponed the work for several
weeks so that we could be present while it was being carried out, but in truth we
didn’t need to be here.
Everybody we have dealt with in your organization has been so professional and
the attention to detail throughout most impressive. From the first quote, to cleanup,
to the restoration of the back garden, the service provided has exceeded all our
Thank you turning what we thought would be a stressful experience into a really
enjoyable one. Please feel free to use us should you need any references in the
