For a small island Galiano has a lot going for it. Great food, stunning beaches and scenic hikes.
One of the first things you have to do after you book your cabin and ferry reservation is make reservations with Pilgrimme. The creation of Chef Jesse McCleery Pilgrimme is exceptional,from the creative dishes they offer carefully curated playlist that comes from the kitchen.
If you have time to kill prior to check-in time be sure to pop into Bowline for a cappuccino and a snack. Featuring the same artisanal Foglifter Coffee we stock in our cabins, you can be sure that your first stop at the cafe won’t be your last while you are on Galiano.
You can rent Rocky Mountain bikes at our other property, Bodega Ridge. Galiano island features some great trails and lots of challenging roads to explore, you can bring your bike on the ferry and cycle along the road to Bodega in about 60 minutes, from here there are numerous cross-country trails and places to see.
Gulf Island kayaking
Our serene shoreline is a haven for marine life and water lovers and Gulf Island Kayaking is the best way to enjoy it. The paddle to the provincial park on Wallace Island is a guest favourite. For larger groups, Ben and his son Chessi at Gulf Island Kayaking will even bring the kayaks to you.
