    Looking at spending the last two weeks of March exploring the Gulf Islands (26M) and looking for some advice on anchorages, routes, wineries, marinas, parks, water accessible hiking, etcetera. Looking at launching from Sydney. No Straight crossing for us yet!

    Might want to grab a Dreamweaver or Waggoner guide. Lots of info covered

    You would need to check with each of the marinas that you want to visit. While you are certainly ahead of the crowds and space shouldn’t be an issue, some are seasonal and won’t be open that early in the season. If you are looking at marinas, Ladysmith, Chemainus, Genoa Bay are our favourites. Poet’s Cove on Pender Island is the favourite of many in the club for its amenities. There are lots of good anchorages, Montague Harbour, Princess Cove or Conover Cove on Wallace Island, Pirates Cove. Each of those anchorages have trails nearby.

    If you are planning on launching at the public boat ramp at Tulista Park, be sure that you have scoped out parking arrangements. There is ample short term parking but we have had challenges there in the past finding somewhere that you could park a vehicle and trailer for more than a couple of days. That was summer, so may be easier in the off season. Not sure whether there are time limits on street parking, that might be an option.
