The Gulf Islands are between the cities of Victoria and Vancouver in British Columbia. They are comprised of Salt Spring, Saturna, Gabriola, Galiano and Pender Islands are quite beautiful. There are ferries that can take you between the islands. There are hiking trails and opportunities to kayak around harbor seals. Expect gorgeous scenery, but not without some climbing. This would be a tour that we would do in July or August. Our tour would start and end in Victoria and also visit Salt Spring and Galiano Islands, and perhaps one more, via ferry.
