Galiano Island is the perfect island for a getaway. Set in the Salish Sea, our island is accessible by seaplane, private boat or with BC Ferries so you can bring your car with you. Galiano's pristine environment boasts many unique and endangered plant species as well as being home to over 150 species of birds. You'll also see deer, beavers, raccoons and even peacocks! Our coastlines are full of life and spotting orcas, humpbacks, seals, otters, and sea lions is an incredible experience that you will never forget.
We have a vibrant culture here and days can be filled with visits to art studios, local shops, marina, golf course, cafes and eateries. Outdoor adventure experiences are always waiting: hiking, swimming, beachcombing, kayaking, sailing and more. Relaxation is ever-present and reflected in our "island time," one of those delightful double entendres: On the one hand it refers to pace, a certain slack attitude towards the clock. But it also refers to time well spent, away, in a place that refreshes the spirit and cleanses the soul.
