Cycling and Ferry Ride Lead To Poets Cove Resort & Spa

Tuesday starts with an optional pre-breakfast hike up to nearby Mt. Galiano.  From the 1,100-foot top you’ll be rewarded with commanding views of the islands below, and ferries navagating the narrow passage between them.  Victoria, the American San Juan Islands, and the snow covered Olympic Mountains are in the distance.  Eagles are often seen circling below searching for salmon.  This is an exciting way to start the day!

After a delicious country breakfast back at our inn, we have a short and leisurely bicycle ride past hidden coves to a ferry that takes us to Pender Island.  Pender is actually two islands, North and South, connected by a one-lane bridge.  We cycle past artists’ studios, pastures, and rocky coves to lunch at a waterfront park.  We spend the next two nights at Poet’s Cove Resort & Spa, a luxurious new resort that has a full-service spa, fine restaurant, and marina located in Bedwell Harbor.
