Gerald Island is one of 13 islands and numerous islets that make up the Ballenas-Winchelsea Archipelago located near Nanoose Bay.
A Rare Undisturbed Ecosystem
Gerald Island Provincial Park was established in 2013 as the result of a partnership with The Land Conservancy of British Columbia.
Gerald Island visitors will find a rare undisturbed rocky coastal bluff ecosystem unique to this part of the Salish Sea. Northern and California sea lions, majestic bald eagles, and many other bird and marine species can also be seen in and around the area.
The island is a recreational day use destination especially popular with kayakers and canoeists. No camping is permitted at Gerald Island Provincial Park in order to protect the sensitive ecosystem and the interests of local First Nations.
