Things to do in Gulf Islands

Island hop by ferry or seaplane to one of British Columbia's 13 major Gulf Islands off the east coast of Vancouver Island and you have truly made the great escape! And, you are guaranteed a getaway of rest and relaxation. Visiting the Gulf Islands includes pampering at a spa and wellness centre and meeting creative residents specializing in arts, crafts, literature, hobby farms and gardening, cooks and musicians.


A calendar full of spring and summer festivals, concerts, readings and theatre performances keep residents and visitors entertained. Inhale the fresh air and natural scenery by hiking, biking or kayaking the many trails, or reduce your pace to "Island time" and beachcomb, window-shop in art galleries and small shops, and savour Island-roasted coffee alongside the locals and find out their local secrets.
