The Gulf Islands Guide began 24 years ago as a vision of sharing the Gulf Islands with the world. Back when the internet was young, many islands didn’t have internet access, digital photography was in its infancy and social media didn’t really exist yet. 

This latest site is the 6th remake of The Gulf Islands Guide and, we think, the best version yet, with many new features and helpful content created to share our love of this beautiful part of the world with visitors.

Originally created by boating enthusiast and professional photographer Kevin Oke, who had spent twenty years living in and exploring the Gulf Islands. Kevin is the photographer for the coffee table book Enchanted Isles – The Southern Gulf Islands and The Cowichan – Duncan, Chemainus, Ladysmith and Region. While Kevin moved to the Cowichan Valley from Pender Island in the summer of 2009 he has kindly passed the torch to the new owner who will be updating this site and keeping it updated.

Take a look around, this is a great adventure and we are thrilled have you here!
