Made-up of in excess of 12 substantial islands, the Gulf Islands are interspersed with a large number of islets too numerous to count. This wonderful westcoast heaven of Canada is a small taste of the Mediterranean, combined with a unique Canadian taste. The Southern Gulf Islands enjoy less than thirty inches of rain annually. Resting south west of the Strait of Georgia, along the coastline of Vancouver Island between Nanaimo to the north and Victoria to the south, this ring of magnificent islands is in the middle of protected seas, strong tides, and stunning coastlines.

Galiano Island together with the other Southern Gulf Islands are a terrific tourism getaway for the entire household.
