The Southern Gulf Islands between the mainland of BC and Vancouver Island are true jewels and should be visited at least once and if you're going to Galiano Island and you don't have a house or tent to stay in while you're here, you should consider the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa. Right on the waterfront adjacent to the ferry terminal, this is a quiet retreat that allows you to adjust very easily to 'island time'; a slow paced life style.
We visited the Inn during their off season so much of what they offer normally was not available but being regular visitors to Galiano Island, we knew that there was a fine bakery just up the road for our breakfast and we brought food from home to warm up in our units' small kitchen and on our private barbecue. Our waterfront room had front door access to the Inn's grassy apron that leads to the waters' edge. Our patio was equipped with a wood fireplace, with plenty of wood for an evenings' entertainment, a double sized bathtub and a radiant heater to ward off the chill.
During the regular season, the Inn offers a fine dining room and a relaxing spa environment but were not available to us when we stayed in February.
Come during the summer and explore the Gulf Islands and make sure you stay at the Galiano Inn and Spa when you visit.
