Canadian Ports: Southern Gulf Islands
Located on the south eastern shore of Vancouver Island, the Southern Gulf Islands of Galiano, Mayne, Pender, Saturna and SaltSpring are home to world renowned artists, writers and entertainers.
Mossy forests and sunny meadows are havens for eagles, deer, mink and otters, while sea lions and whales thrive along the pristine shores.
It is on the Southern Gulf Islands in particular that visitors discover some of the Provinces' best country inns, cottage resorts, craft shops and restaurants.
Each of the 5 main islands are easily accessible through daily sailings from both Vancouver on the Mainland Tsawwassen terminal, and, Victoria (Swartz Bay terminal) on Vancouver Island.
