North of the San Juans, protected in the lee of Vancouver Island,lie the Gulf Islands. This is an enchanting group of more than 200 islands and islets whose tranquil waterways and gentle landscape contrast with the ruggedness of the open Pacific Ocean coastline not many miles to the west.

This has been described as a place where people can be with people and yet be alone. Its many natural charms are complemented by convenient man-made facilities making it a haven for boaters meandering from anchorage to anchorage. As you find your way among these island, you will gain an appreciation of why so many hail this to be the best cruising in the world.
