Transportation & Maps
Saturna Island receives plenty of year-round BC Ferries service and it's easy to get here from Vancouver, Vancouver Island, and other neighboring Gulf Islands.
Or book a seaplane flight and get here in minutes from Vancouver or Seattle. There is no bus or taxi service on the island.
There are morning and afternoon options when sailing to Lyall Harbour from the Swartz Bay terminal south of Victoria on Vancouver Island or Tsawwassen on the BC mainland.
In all cases save the occasional non-stop route to Swartz Bay, drivers and walk-on passengers must transfer ships when arriving at the Mayne Island terminal. Ferry staff will give drivers a purple Saturna sign for their dashboards and employees will ensure that the "waltz" at Mayne's Village Bay goes smoothly.
