Sailing The Gulf Islands & Vancouver Island, Including Victoria
& Sooke to Nanaimo
Snug along Vancouver Island’s southeast shoreline, the Gulf Islands create an accessible cruising playground that stretches between the urban centres of Victoria, Sidney and Nanaimo. Each island offers a distinct character and local specialities, with Ganges on Saltspring Island providing the central hub. Marinas, fuel and provisioning stops can be found on many of the islands, and you are never too far from a sheltered anchorage, sandy beach, hiking trail or scenic marine park.
