The Gulf Islands Marine Trail (GIMT) extends from Nanaimo to Island View Beach in Saanich encompassing the southern Gulf Islands from Newcastle Island and Gabriola Island in the northern extent to Mayne, Saturna and D'Arcy Islands to the southern extent. The GIMT also includes the east coast of Vancouver Island from Nanaimo to Saanich, BC. Our main Geolive map (opens new window) is the most comprehensive source of information for Campsites, Day Use sites and Launch Sites at this time.
