Things to Do
Active pass off Galiano Island (Adrian Dorst photo)
Recreational activity or recumbent relaxation, Galiano Island offers no shortage of things to do (or, if preferred, not do).
The active set will enjoy hiking, cycling, golf and plentiful water activities – kayaking, swimming, fishing and pleasure boating included. Or chill, read, beachcomb and enjoy quality personal time in oceanfront accomodations.
Also on the activity check list: tour art studios, dine out, get a spa treatment, train binoculars on the wildlife and beachcomb at 69 shore access points.
Montague Harbour welcomes pleasure boaters in the summer, and it's a routine stop for incoming traffic from along the Pacfic coast. It's a chief departure point for kayakers paddling the Dali-esque, wave-carved sandstone coastline or heading off to stops in the Gulf Island National Park Reserve. Rent hardshells or sign up for guided tours with the marina-based Gulf Island Kayaking.
