A hop removed from the main BC Ferries routes, Saturna is a year-round hideaway for visitors who arrive at Lyall Harbour either by a ferry transfer at Mayne Island or by floatplane. Almost half of the island is protected parkland, and that includes forest, oceanside parks and Brown Ridge’s see-forever views. Art studios, a pub and a general store provide diversions, as do the orcas swimming past the East Point lighthouse. Boats pack into Winter Cove for the island’s famous Canada Day Lamb Barbecue.
