The Southern Gulf Islands are located off the West Coast of
Canada, in the Strait of Georgia between southern Vancouver Island and the
British Columbia mainland. The Gulf Islands are eight hours behind Universal
The Southern Gulf Islands are :
Galiano Island, Mayne Island,
Pender Island, Salt Spring Island,
Saturna Island, plus many smaller islands.
The Gulf Islands are part of the same island system as the American San Juan Islands,
and it's possible to visit San Juan Island from the Gulf Islands by power
All of the large islands, plus Thetis Island, are serviced by BC Ferries. For the many smaller islands,
one needs a private boat to access them. Floatplane companies also offer
regularly scheduled service to several of the Gulf Islands. This allows easy access to the
cities of Vancouver, Victoria, and Seattle
The weather pattern on the Salt Spring Island & the Gulf Islands is a microclimate known
as "cool Mediterranean". Some species of plants normally associated with California are
found on the Gulf Islands.
Salt Spring Island & the Gulf Islands enjoys less rainfall than on Vancouver Island or the
Lower Mainland. This is due to the physical location of the Islands, where they enjoy the
rain shadow protection from the larger Vancouver Island.
The Southern Gulf Islands are protected by a Provincial Government body known as the Islands Trust.
