The six major islands that make up this region are Gabriola, Salt Spring, Galiano, Pender, Mayne and Saturna. All have their own unique charm and character and due to the pleasantly mild climate, the islands are a great place to visit at any time of the year. From lush green forests, miles of beaches teeming with intertidal marine life, rolling meadows to rocky shorelines, these are quiet places that soothe the soul. Add to this views that are beyond most people's wildest dreams, activities for all ages, tastes and budgets and it is easy to see why the locals consider the Gulf Islands a paradise as well.
BC Ferries provides frequent year-round service to the Gulf Islands and boaters will find excellent facilities and marinas on each of the islands. See our "things to do" list for each island as well as accommodations, activities, facilities, and tours available.
