Salt Spring Island
Salt Spring Island is 27 km (17 miles) long and 14 km (9 miles) wide (74 sq miles), with 133 km (83 miles) of shoreline. The island attracts visitors and prospective residents with its mild climate and annual sunshine in excess of 2,000 hours.
Artists, farmers, chefs, mechanics, romantics, writers, retirees and dreamers have been drawn to its shores and have recognized it as one of the world's best places to stay. Renowned for its creativity, Salt Spring Island is known as one of North America's best small arts towns and, due to the high demand to live there and limited supply of land offerings, Salt Spring Island holds some of the most desired and priciest real estate on the entire west coast of North America. The famous Saturday Market displays a great cross-section of the high-quality arts and crafts from paintings to pottery, jewellery and clothing, weaving and woodworks.
The sheltered haven of Maple Bay is situated halfway up Sansum Narrows, which separates Vancouver Island from Salt Spring Island, the largest and nearest of the Southern Gulf Islands.
Maple Bay is serviced by floatplanes (Salt Spring Air and Harbour Air Seaplanes) that fly regularly scheduled flights several times a day from Maple Bay Marina to Ganges Harbour (Ganges Water Aerodrome) on Salt Spring Island, and then on to Vancouver (Vancouver International Water Airport/Vancouver International Airport and Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre).
There are three commercial marinas and a public dock, as well as the Maple Bay Yacht Club and the Maple Bay Rowing Club.
Maple Bay Marina is replacing many older boat sheds with new styles and fire resistant yacht enclosures, creating one the safest and most environmentally responsible marinas in British Columbia. Maple Bay Marina has also been recognized with an Eco-Rating of 4 anchors for their Environmental Best Practices by the Georgia Strait Alliance Clean Marine program.
