Getting to the Saturna Lamb Barbeque
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.
Information on the BBQ and the Island is available at the dockside ‘Welcome Booth’.
Boaters are required to have life jackets, boat to shore; life jacket lockup service available at 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.
