Visiting all 5 of the Southern Gulf Islands just got easier!

A new water taxi service, AquaLink, connecting all 5 of the Southern Gulf Islands is set to begin operation this fall. 

In September, travellers will be able to use the water taxi to visit Salt Spring Island, Galiano Island, Mayne Island, Pender Island and Saturna Island.

The water taxi, a pilot project funded by the Southern Gulf Islands Tourism Partnership (SGITP), will run every Saturday and Sunday. 

Each route will have one scheduled trip in the morning and one in the afternoon/evening.

The cost of each island hop varies, with shorter routes (such as Salt Spring to Galiano) costing $15.75 per adult and longer routes (such as Mayne to Saturna) costing $21 per adult. Ticket prices are one-way. 

You can pre-book your September trip by visiting Aqualink’s website here.
