Traveller's Alert

Galiano Island is passionate about hospitality and welcoming visitors. However, the current health crisis is the most serious challenge we have faced in our community, for our residents and our Island economy, and it is impacting that welcoming hospitality.

Potential visitors should know that our Island has reduced services: most restaurants and stores are now closed. And, as a very small island, we have limited resources for medical care and services and transportation and food: all of which can only support our island population right now.

We ask that you postpone any vacation plans for Galiano Island and visit us when the time is safe for you and for us.

We also ask you to consider buying a Gift Certificate now, for a stay or dinner or gift…it will help our small businesses make it through difficult times.
