Made up of over 12 substantial islands, the Gulf Islands are interspersed with a plethora of islets too numerous to count. This special westcoast heaven of Canada is a small flavor of the Mediterranean, blended with an original Canadian taste. The Gulf Islands enjoy under thirty inches of rain per year. Resting southwest 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 sheltered seas, powerful tides, and spectacular coastlines.

South Pender Island together with the other Southern Gulf Islands are an outstanding travel destination for the entire household.
