Georgia Strait 2
Now we've traveled down to the southern part of the Georgia Strait, to Tombo Island and the reefs that surround it. Because Tombo lies just at the edge of the open Straits, at the eastern edge of the Canadian Gulf Islands, it is little visited. The seas are often rough here, and the low islands are open to the wind. Seals and sea birds populate the reefs, moving to higher ground as the tide comes in. On shore, Tombo Island offers great views, including the vista above looking north along the Gulf Islands.
