Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island Circle Tour
Follow a winding ribbon of road north from Vancouver up the scenic Sunshine Coast to Powell River before crossing the Strait of Georgia to Vancouver Island on a BC Ferry. Travel down the east coast of Vancouver Island to Nanaimo, or further south to Victoria. A second ferry experience completes the circle in Tsawwassen, south of Vancouver.

Island Hopping
Travelling between the Southern Gulf Islands and Northern Gulf Islands can be accomplished in small hops. Each of these islands is a world unto itself, each with its own history, culture and colourful characters – each island deserves at least a day or two for exploring.
