|Area Data :||
Pender Island is located in the Southern Gulf Islands, between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia and consists of two islands, North Pender and South Pender, which are separated by a canal and accessed by way of a one-lane bridge. Pender Island is a 2-hour ferry ride away from Vancouver and a 40-minute ferry ride from Sidney, BC.
Pender Island enjoys a sub-Mediterranean climate and features open farmland, rolling forested hills, several lakes and small mountains, as well as many coves and beaches. In fact, Pender Island offers the most public beach access points of any of the Gulf Islands.
Pender is a choice weekend and year-round holiday destination. Summer is generally a busy time, while the island pace slows down considerably during the winter months. Spring and fall are pleasant times of the year, with fewer tourists and mild weather.
North Pender and South Pender Islands were originally one island connected by an isthmus. This is a site that was used by the Coast Salish First Nations for thousands of years and has a rich history. A canal was dredged in the early 1900s to allow the ferry and boats quicker, safer passage between the islands.
The islands, along with Pender Harbour on the Sunshine Coast, were given their current names by Captain Richards R.N. of H.M.S. Plumper in 1859 after his senior survey officer, Second Master Daniel Pender. The first permanent residents of European descent arrived on Pender Island in 1872.
