Explore the Southern Gulf Islands, BC

Winter is a great time to visit the Southern Gulf Islands . Nestled between Vancouver Island and the Vancouver Mainland, the Southern Gulf Islands are a perfect getaway for outdoor adventure, farm-fresh food and drink, arts and culture entertainment and wellness retreats. Long walks in the woods and along beaches make for memorable family time or for romantic couple’s escapes. And at the end of the day, tuck into one of our many places to stay on our islands in front of a fire and a warm embrace!

The Southern Gulf Islands are recognized as a world-classed destination to visit, including being recently featured in the New York Times as one of the “52 Places to go in 2016”. Why not spend some time on neighbouring islands, have some island hopping fun and find out what all of the fuss is about!

Now that spring is here and the evenings are getting milder, it is time for a relaxed  drink out on the patio.

His wife Amanda and him started the business in September 2017 and are open year round. The beautiful store & espresso bar is located at Hope Bay and offers a big variety of delicate chocolates - Mojito Truffel, Fresh Lime, Rum & White Chocolate...and many more. Stop by and try a few next time you are around! Ryan's favourite spot on the island: Welcome Bay.
