The Gulf Island Samper Cruise – by John Lund & Marianne van Toor

I apologize for transposing the requisite “Swanson Channel” with “Sansum Narrows” to and from Otter Bay, Pender Island. Swanson Channel is the correct waterway and will get you to this boating golfer’s favourite Gulf Island marina every time. Sorry for the confusion.

These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
