VISITING GABRIOLA

Welcome to
Gabriola Island

Isle of the Arts: Our regular ferry and float plane services provide easy access to Gabriola from Nanaimo and Vancouver. With one of the best climates in Canada, plus beaches, parks, ocean views and sunsets, Gabriola is one of BC's top destinations to visit and live.

Unwind, do some beachcombing, play on the water, visit the local galleries and shops, hike, bike, enjoy the Gabriola culture and create memories with friends and family.
