Boat accessible spas in Gulf Islands
Even though more and more women are getting into boating and building their skills in both captain and crew positions, it’s still mostly men who have the “boating bug” in the relationship and men regularly ask how to get their female partners excited about boating. Many women love the quiet and serenity of isolated anchorages but still wish the cooking and cleaning would not follow them from home, they would like to feel like it’s a real holiday more than a camping trip on water. Maybe it’s time to visit one of the boat accessible spas in Gulf islands!
There are three beautiful spa resorts in Gulf Islands with transient moorage space for guests.
Premier luxury resort in secluded bay on Pender Island. With a full service marina and spa you can’t go wrong making reservations for a weekend boating trip. The Susurrus Spa and the eucalyptus steam cave will leave you pampered and relaxed, ready for a lovely dinner at one of the three restaurants at premises.
