About Saturna


Saturna Island is easily accessible, by ferry from Vancouver and Victoria or by floatplane from Vancouver.


Yet this is by far the most remote, crowd-free refuge in the southern Gulf Islands. A tiny population of just 350 full-time residents combined with cozy accommodations, a small selection of retail stores and galleries and the island’s well-protected natural beauty make Saturna a prime R&R locale.


Saturna draws visitors who appreciate peace, pleasant outdoor activities, and abundant quality time with books, binoculars, journals, art supplies and creative imaginations. Hiking, kayaking, wildlife viewing, home-studio artist tours, lazy afternoons in parks and miscellaneous water activities (swimming, boating, beachcombing) are favourite pursuits here.

Come for the BBQ and stay with us for awhile!
