To be on a small island all to yourself, a short kayaking distance off the shore of the most remote of the Southern Gulf Islands was an incredible privilege and a fantastic experience. For four nights, my wife and I stayed on Trevor Island with our two boys, 10 and 13. We spent the four days enjoying the island, kayaking around the neighboring islands, swimming off the dock, enjoying the breathtaking sunsets, and it was truly one of the most enjoyable and relaxing vacation experiences we've had. There are otters and seals in the water around the island, the island itself also has all the native trees from the local forests, and there are tide pools on the island with crab and oysters. And you have it all to yourself! The owners' son, Michael, was very responsive. He made arrangements to pick us up at the ferry dock and to take us back after the four days. He stuck his neck out to help us with some initial scheduling, and also helped us arrange for groceries when we arrived, so he went above and beyond to make the experience special.
One bit of advice to other travelers: Saturna Island is remote. Getting to and from the island can be a challenge. We used Seair seaplanes, which were surprisingly affordable and ended up being part of the adventure. In the end, once you figure out the logistics, its remoteness is its feature. You will have a gorgeous piece of one of North America's most beautiful places all to yourself.
