Made-up of in excess of 12 substantial islands, the Gulf Islands are interwoven with a multitude of islets too numerous to count. This distinctive Gulf Island nirvana of western Canada is a small flavour of the Mediterranean, combined with an original Canadian taste. The Gulf Islands enjoy fewer than thirty inches of rainfall per year. Lying south west of the Strait of Georgia, along the coast of Vancouver Island between Campbell River to the north and Victoria to the south, this ring of breathtaking islands is surrounded by protected waters, powerful tides, and remarkable coastlines.

Gabriola Island as well as the other Southern Gulf Islands are an exceptional tourism destination for the entire household.
