Galiano Island has much to offer our visitors. Spend an afternoon visiting the many artisans that live on Galiano or rent a boat and set a crab trap and enjoy a feed of Dungeness crab or explore the Galiano's many bays, beaches and sea caves…..and hope to be lucky enough to see a resident pod of Killer Whales passing through Active Pass on their 1-2 day feeding cycle. Hike to Mt Galiano or Bodega Ridge for an unparalelled panoramic view of the surrounding Southern Gulf Islands. Upon your return uncork your favourite wine and settle down on a log and experience a unique West coast sunset.
After an afternoon discovering the wonders that make Galiano the ‘Gem of the Gulf Islands’….Snuggle in under a cozy duvet on a queen sized handcrafted bed with a four piece en suite bathroom.
