The Gulf Islands are located in the Strait of Georgia between the mainland and Vancouver Island, accessible by BC Ferries. Many of the islands have quaint villages that are home to unique artisan stores selling local products and successful wineries. The islands have small communities of people and large communities of wildlife. It's difficult to visit one of the islands without seeing something worth writing home about.
Our favourites are Galiano and Salt Spring Islands. We could spend days going to the shops, eating local food, and putting our watches to island time.
