Thesouthern Gulf Islands, situated off the east coast of southern Vancouver Island comprise 11 major islands ( North to South: Gabriola, Valdes, Thetis, Kuper, Galiano, Saltspring (Salt Spring), Prevost, Mayne, North and South Pender and Saturna) plus several smaller islands. The southern Gulf Islands and the San Juan Islands to the south are part of the same archipelago, despite the national boundary.
The San Juan Islands are located just to the south of the southern Gulf Islands in the northern reaches of Puget Sound. There are five main islands in the group; San Juan Island which is the Saltspring of the San Juans and has an area of 55.3 square miles and population of 7000. As with the Gulf Islands there are numerous small islands, the largest being Blakely Island.
All the islands are known for their peaceful, rural character, despite their proximity to the major urban centers on Vancouver Island as well as the cities of Vancouver, Tacoma and Seattle. These centers, located within a radius of 100 miles, have a combined population of over four million.
Weather is mediterranean in type, with mild summers and warm winters. The islands generally lie in the rain shadow of Vancouver Island and the Olympic Penninsula and thus benefit from considerably lower rainfall than, say, Vancouver.
