The Salish Sea, 2 of 5.
The Salish Sea is a body of water encompassing Georgia Strait, Howe Sound, Burrard Inlet, Puget Sound, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The sea is named after the Coast Salish people who are the first inhabitants of the region. The renaming without displacing the old geographic names occurred in 2010.
From the perch up on Grouse Mountain, afternoon winter sun illuminates the waters of Georgia Strait as a BC Ferries’ ship from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island is on approach to the mainland terminal at Horseshoe Bay.
