A walk on the ancient whiteshell beach at Montague Harbour is perhaps the best single history lesson on Galiano Island.
The Penelakut Band have a reserve at the northwest tip of the island.
Galiano is named after Spanish naval captain Dionisio Aleala Galiano, dispatched from Mexico in 1792 to chart what is now the BC coastline aboard the vessel Sutil. Plumper honoured the Spanish officer – who died in combat at the Battle of Trafalgar during the Napoleonic Wars – by naming the island after him.
In the late 1850s, British surveyor George Richards of the H. The Cariboo gold rush brought many grizzled dreamers to the west coast in the decade prior to Canadian Confederation in 1867.
Despite our notorious, semi-ubiquitous rain, Vancouver weather actually does vary throughout the year.
Milder than the rest of Canada, we're lucky to enjoy relatively warm winters, but we have a short summer--in terms of hot weather--too.
Whether you're visiting Vancouver or live here, knowing what type of Vancouver weather to expect is imperative.

Dianne Laronde's colorful, information-saturated (originally produced for Islands in the Salish Sea, the region's award-winning community atlas) is available in local shops.
Dionisio Point, Montague Harbour and Sturdies Bay were seasonal fishing villages for the Coast Salish First Nations.
Arriving by canoe and settling in for the summer, the Salish hunted sea lions and fished for salmon.
Archeological excavations have found remains dating back at least 3,000 years, and wet digs offshore from sheltered Montague Harbour (where the water has risen over the millennia) suggest the island was a waystation for nomadic visitors long before this.
