Cowichan Bay BC

The picturesque waterfront village of Cowichan Bay is located near the southwest corner of Cowichan Bay.  Docks at Fishermens Wharf are behind a floating breakwater.  The floating breakwater dock is not connected to land.  A dinghy is needed for shore access.  The privately-owned marinas are west of the public wharf.  At the other end of town, Hecate Park has a launch ramp with ample trailer storage.  In settled weather anchorage is possible but not advised.  We are told crabbing and prawning are good.

The village is full of life.  it has numerous shops and businesses, including liquor stores and good restaurants, not one of them part of a major chain.  Interesting little shops are tucked away everywhere.  The Grain Mill Bakery is superb as is Hilary’s Cheese Shop.  The Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre, built on a wharf extending from shore, has many interesting displays.
