Fall harvest festival at the Saturna Island Vineyard, Saturna Island, BC

Consisting of over a dozen large islands, the Gulf Islands are interspersed with a plethora of islets too numerous to count. This special westcoast nirvana of western Canada is a small flavour of the Mediterranean, blended with an original Canadian quality. The Gulf Islands enjoy fewer than thirty inches of rain annually. Lying southwest of the Strait of Georgia, along the shoreline of Vancouver Island between Nanaimo to the north and Victoria to the south, this necklace of attractive islands is in the middle of sheltered waters, powerful tides, and sensational coastlines.

Salt Spring Island and the other Southern Gulf Islands are an exceptional travel and leisure destination for the whole family.
