Gulf Islands in 3 Days and 2 Nights

Itinerary for Granville Island, Vancouver to the Gulf Islands in 3 days and 2 nights

Day 1

Depart Granville Island to Montague Harbour Marine Park, on Galiano Island.  Either tie up to mooring buoys or otherwise anchor in the very well protected bay.  Arrive in time for dinner on board or let the locals treat you at the newly renovated marina restaurant.  Look out for the lively Hummingbird Pub Bus, a local favourite fun way to ride the hill for a happy hour pub visit.

Day 2

Take morning walk around the Marine Park, can you spot the driftwood deer?  There is some great beach combing, kayaking, or simply soak in the sun on one of the shell beaches.  Leave in the afternoon for an easy trip to Ganges on Saltspring Island.  Mooring at the dock is simple and you should have time left for dinner and ice cream in town.

Day 3

If you happen to be in Ganges on a Saturday morning go check out the best Farmers Market in the Gulf Islands.  From there it’s a simple trip back to Granville Island via Active Pass.  Enjoy the crossing and keep an eye out for whales!
