Salt Spring Island History & Wildlife

Salt Spring Island's namesakes are found in the northern part of the island on various private properties. While reputed to be unspectacular mineral springs, they nevertheless singled out this large island as being the only one not named for an explorer or his ship.

In 1859, the first settlers arrived on the island from all parts of the world. Many were Blacks from California, escaping the harsh state laws and looking for a place to farm. Unsurveyed land was virtually free on Salt Spring Island and by the end of that year 117 settlers had taken advantage of the fact.

While many people visit the Gulf Islands for the breathtaking scenery, the arts, a rural lifestyle and the mellow atmosphere, others come to explore the magnificent surroundings and to appreciate the diverse wildlife that is found both on land and within the waters that surround us.

Many species are commonly seen throughout the year, the bald eagles, river otters and harbour seals. Others are more elusive and require either extreme luck or being in the right place at the right time. Our resident pods of orcas and dolphins are commonly seen where the humpback whale is a rare visitor to the protected waters of the strait.
