BC’s Gulf Islands

The Gulf Islands are the gems of the BC coast! With their calm waters, picturesque shorelines, incredible sandstone formations and tranquil harbour communities, exploring the Gulf Islands is an experience of a lifetime. Whether it’s camping on a remote island, relaxing in one of our private cottages, or exploring a farmer’s market in one of the busy town centres, there is something for everyone!

Gabriola Island is a convenient gateway to BC’s Gulf Island. Easily accessible in 20 minutes by ferry from Nanaimo, or seaplane from Vancouver, it’s the perfect place to start your adventure. Silva Bay, at the south end of Gabriola, is surrounded by the amazing Flat Top Islands which offer endless options for exploratory day trips and wildlife viewing. Gabriola is also an excellent entry point for a week-long expedition into the Gulf Island National Park. Our office is located next to the general store above the dock at the Silva Bay Inn.

Our family has been operating Silva Bay Kayak Adventures on Gabriola Island for 4 years. We continue with the same philosophy and commitment to participatory group experience and quality adventures as Gabriola Cycle and Kayak, the company that pioneered the kayaking industry over 25 years ago. We have the boats, gear and experience to ensure that your next adventure will be a fun and enriching one. Email or call us directly, we’ll do whatever we can to get you on the water!
