Hi, I’m Gary Barber and I’m one of the owners of Calais Spas. Before we moved to Nanaimo, I worked as a steel fabricator for CN Railway. I always wanted to be my own boss, so in 1994 when the opportunity presented itself, we moved to Nanaimo to raise our kids and open the business. My personal and professional background provided me with a lot of mechanical knowledge so my progression into the pool and spa industry was an excellent fit.

My friends and family all know me as an avid outdoorsman. Year round, I spend a lot of my free time on my boat with family or at the float house I share with friends in the Alberni canal. I also like spending time exploring the backwoods of the island on my quad and take the odd hunting trip with my brother and cousins in northern BC.

I’m now a grandpa to three wonderful grandkids who keep my wife and I laughing at the funny, goofy things they say and do. I love spending time with family and friends and I get a great satisfaction from bringing our customers dreams to life, installing beautiful pools and spas for them to enjoy with their loved ones in their own backyard.
