Salt Spring Island is the jewel of the Southern Gulf Islands. It is nestled up against the East side of Vancouver Island , just a short ferry ride from Victoria, the capital city of BC. More than ten thousand people reside on Salt Spring Island, as well as several thousand sheep and a sizeable deer population.  Salt Spring Island has long been known as a very special place in BC as it is well-known for its very large number of artists, sculptors and musicians that live here.  The Saturday market is always a highlight and draws visitors from around the world!
