Fulford Harbour

Fulford Harbour is on the southern end of Salt Spring Island, BC, and about 20 minutes south of Ganges. It is mostly residential but has a gas station and grocery store, a restaurant, an art gallery, a marina, and a BC Ferries terminal with sailings to Swartz Bay on Vancouver Island. Victoria is about a 45 minute drive from the Swartz Bay ferry terminal.

The Fulford Inn sits right across the road from the head of the harbour. It's the perfect spot to stop by while touring the southern half of the island. Home cooked meals as well as local and domestic beer is available. It's just minutes away from the Fulford ferry terminal. There is beach access at Fulford Harbour from Drummond Park just around the corner from the Fulford Inn.

The road to Isabella Point branches off by the Fulford Inn. This is also the starting point for road access to Musgrave Landing, Mount Tuam, and Bruce Peak. There are spectacular 360 degree views from the top of 2200 foot Bruce Peak. On a clear day, you can see Mt. Rainier down in the US. Most of the road can be managed by a two wheel drive vehicle, but there is one steep stretch near the top that should not be attempted except in a four wheel drive vehicle. Don't forget to stop at Little Lake along the way to look for eagles and ducks.

Fulford Harbour is on the way to Ruckle Park and Beaver Point down at the south end of the Island. Ruckle Park is a provincial campground. There are trails along the rocky shore as well as over to Yeo Point. The Ruckle family, who still lives on Ruckle farm within the park, donated the land to the province of BC to be used as a park.

Fulford Day at Drummond Park... Aug 6 2011: Every year since 1989, Fulford Days has been held August at Drummond Park, so 2011 will mark the 23rd annual event! It's a day of fun with music, food, and activities for all with maybe some surprises from the sky! If you work up an appetite, you will have to choose from Salt Spring lamb, salmon or beef barbecues, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob and other tasty treats. The kids races usually get going at 10 am, with other children's activities at 1 pm. Don't forget the watermelon eating contest and cake walk! Fun for the whole family, but please leave your dogs at home.

These Orcas, otherwise known as killer whales, are from the Landmark Mural which is painted on a buoy that is in a prominent location in Ganges near Centenial Park.
