    While Saturna Island is a small rural community we do have a thriving artist community and the best hiking areas you will find anywhere. Nature abounds. The Island also boasts one of the best land based whale viewing sites anywhere on the west coast! We also love to experience and learn about the foods of other cultures and teach what we know.
