There are 225 Gulf Islands, many of which are quite small and only accessible by private boat. The largest island is Vancouver Island, comparable in size to the island of Japan. The other six less inhabited islands; Saltspring, Mayne, Galiano, Pender, and Saturna fitted with small cozy villages, accommodations, art galleries, park lands, and great outdoor camping and exploration.
