Strait of Georgia

Strait and Sound topographicalThe Strait of Georgia, our amazing inland sea, is 220 km (135 miles) long.

Located between Vancouver Island and the mainland coast of British Columbia, the Strait stretches from the US border (where it adjoins Puget Sound), north to Campbell River and the Discovery Islands.

The Strait is part of a huge estuary system – a place where hundreds of rivers flow into the sea, helping to shape the unique characteristics of the region and makiing the Strait of Georgia biologically rich.

According to Parks Canada, the southern Strait of Georgia is Canada's "most at-risk natural environment".
