Situated in the middle of the unspoiled beauty and natural charm of the Saanich Peninsula, Sidney is a lively community that serves as a gateway to the San Juan Islands of the US and Gulf Islands of British Columbia, Canada.

Considered a tourist’s paradise, the port appeals to both land-based adventurers and seafaring excursionists because of the mild climate all year round, waterfronts that are accessible to the public, a good number of inlets and islands, and the amazing beachcombing. And with the numerous galleries, coffee bars, restaurants, antique shops and gift stores that populate the area, a vacationer could never ask for more.

Back in time, Sidney used to be a small community of farmers where the first flour mill in the island was located. Incorporated in 1967, it later became a bustling resort town frequented by tourists. It is located north of Victoria and south of Nanaimo on the southern part of Vancouver Island. From the core of the downtown area, you can simply walk towards the full service marinas.

Sidney is also just minutes away from the British Columbia Ferries, Victoria International Airport and the world-renowned Butchart Gardens.
