The coastline is never more than a few minutes away no matter where one is on Galiano Island.

Get to the water at one of 69 access points. Swim at Montague Harbour and Cable Bay. Or sail past the cliffs and fantastical carved sandstone coastline in a boat or kayak.

Pleasure Boating

Montague Harbour Marina is among the most popular stops in the Gulf Islands archepelgo, which in turn is widely recognized as one of the top pleasure cruising regions in the world. Guest moorage space is available at the marina, and it's wise to book ahead when regional sailors are bee-lining here in the summer. Amenities include a fuel dock, grocery store, restaurant and rental facilities for mopeds, kayaks, motorboats, and bikes.

Mooring buoys are available in sheltered Montague Harbour. Drop anchor here, in Retreat Cove further north along the coastline and in pretty Whaler Bay in Galiano's southeast corner.
