Gabriola Island – Silva Bay


Gabriola Island, Vancouver CanadaThis picturesque island is located at the very head of the Gulf Islands.  The island is serviced with a ferry from Nanaimo several times a day. The very best anchorage is at Silva Bay which is located on the East coast of the island.  This Bay offers great overnight anchorage in a sheltered bay or the facility to tie alongside the marina.  There is construction  ashore for a great redevelopment of Silva Bay Resort and Marina    Gulf Island Sea planes, in addition to the float plane service also offers marine diesel and gas.

Hire a car and explore the island visiting the varied  local art studios   artists-fine-art-artisans

Visit the Malaspina Galleries, located at the north western tip of Gabriola Island, about 3km from the ferry terminal.  The ocean has carved this sandstone peninsula into an unusual wavelike formation of a barreling wave and is truly fascinating to see. It is a wonderfully visual way to appreciate the sheer power of water.  The wave is nearly 4m tall, which means you can easily walk under it and observe the finer details of the rock structure.

For a distinct taste and cider experience visit the Ravenskill Orchard  for  “u-pick”  heritage apples, rich blended sweet cider, and other products like apple caramels and homemade apple butter.  as well as their very own Ravenskill craft-made Gabbie’s Premium Hard Cider

For something completely different; Learn how to make your own handcrafted cheeses! enjoy a truly unique experience

Easy to make this a fun stop at the start or end of your Gulf Island cruise
