Saturna Island Tour:

Almost one half of Saturna’s  31 sq.km of stunning bays, valleys and high rock bluffs are protected within the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve.  For summer recreation, Russell Reef, off East Point Road, showcases a lovely natural swimming hole and Thomson Park provides a perfect beacj to swim and relax.

The local vineyard has become well known for its wines and also runs the "Vineyard Bistro".
The Saturna Cafe and the Lighthouse Pub & Restaurant are also popular eateries on the island.

History:

The island was first used by indigenous people who called the island "Long Nose," due to the island’s long north-eastern tapering shoreline.

The name Saturna comes from the ship Santa Saturnina ("St. Saturnina"), commanded by Captain José María Narváez in 1791.

The first European settlers came in the 1800s, but the island was slower to develop than the neighbouring Gulf Islands due to its relative isolation and rugged topography.
