Southern Gulf Islands

The Gulf Islands archipelago, located in the Strait of Georgia, is nestled in between Vancouver Island and the B.C. mainland. Some of the over 200 islands that make up the archipelago are inhabited to some degree, while others are home to only the local flora and fauna. The five main islands, Saltspring, Saturna, Pender, Galiano, and Mayne, are serviced by B.C. Ferries daily (multiple sailings), as well as some of the smaller islands, serviced a little less frequently. Many folks call them home year-round, but it is during the spring and summer months that these unique communities come alive, welcoming visitors from nearby Victoria, and from all corners of the globe.
