Getting to the Barbeque
Getting to the Saturna Lamb Barbeque
* NEW THIS YEAR – ATM ON SITE*
When you arrive at Saturna Island, boat anchorage is available at Winter Cove on a ‘first come first served’ basis. Dinghy shuttle service is available ‘boat to dock’. You can choose to be rowed in on the Saturnita or on a more conventional inflatable.
Boaters are required to have life jackets, boat to shore; life jacket lockup service along with BBQ information is available at the dockside ‘Welcome Booth’.
No alcohol may be brought ashore to the Barbeque grounds. Health rules require that we do not allow dogs on-site but we do have a pet minding service close to the dock.
Saturna Island is serviced by BC FERRIES, with daily sailings from Vancouver (Tsawwassen terminal) and Victoria (Swartz Bay terminal) arriving at the dock at the foot of East Point Road (Lyall Harbour).
