Destination BC and the Southern Gulf Islands are working together in a ground-breaking tourism marketing initiative called “Experience the Southern Gulf Islands”, showcasing our region and inviting visitors to our eco-friendly Islands for outdoor adventure and natural beauty. The Chambers of Commerce from Galiano, Mayne, Pender and Salt Spring, along with the Saturna Island Tourism Association, are partnering to create “Experience the Southern Gulf Islands”. We will be showcasing the Southern Gulf Islands in a totally new and innovative way as a year-round destination with the support of Destination BC and their new Co-op Marketing Partnerships Program.
“We are very excited about this program and see great possibilities for the Southern Gulf Islands to work together on this tourism initiative along with other projects that could have a positive impact on our island economies. This will be a new regional approach to promoting the Gulf Islands and we thank Destination BC for being the catalyst to bring us together.” says Li Read, President of the Salt Spring Island Chamber of Commerce.
