Reviews for Cowichan Bay Fishermen's Wharf
great stop..., 2016-08-08
Captain: , North Vancouver, BC (547)

Super helpful staff, facilities were in pleasantly "as expected" (mean that in a good way) - and the village is simply wonderful. Only reason for not five stars - power box door hinges were broken, door (heavy) landed on me. And no water on the docks... we'll go back though - a very decent place to stay



Great small town marina, 2013-09-22
Captain: , Quilcene, WA (20)

Real nice people running the place. Real clean (bathrooms and shower included). Additionally, the only descent Free W-Fi we had anywhere in the Gulf Islands on our recent trip (much better then the far more expensive Port of Sydney or Nanaimo City marina).

As others have said, Cowichan Bay is a small town but it has a great bakery and cheese shop, wondeful pub, and numerous coffee shops, and a good selection of restaurants (including the pub) for a relatively small place.

Also extremely picturesqe w/ the working marina (numeorus fishing boats, house boats, etc.) and the mountains across the bay.

Definitely a great small marina stop over.



Great little town, 2013-09-07
Captain: , Bozeman, MT (740)

We really enjoyed the marine store, the bakery, the coffee shops, and the cheese store but the seafood store was the best of all. Great people, wonderful food, all in easy walking distance.



Laid Back and peaceful, 2013-08-31
Captain: , Sidney BC (582)

Lovely marina, accommocating sfaff and clsoe to Cowcichan Bay village with restarurants and shops. Easy to get in and out of.



Great hospitality, 2013-08-18
Captain: , Vida, Oregon (20)

Very laid back and an economical marina. Facilities are modern including docks and shower, washroom and laundry. This is a working boat marina where you can buy fresh shrimp and crab right off the boats when they are in port. Wonderful bakery (don't miss the breads). The market has the basics but not much in the way of fresh veg. And most of the meat is frozen. Town is right at the head of the dock and is only several blocks long but quaint. Check out at noon but flexible (until 2 pm).



A favorite stop, 2012-05-24
Captain: , Sequim, WA (676)

We love Cow Bay as the locals call it. The bread and cheese are worth the trip. Docks are nice and new. Short hop to Genoa Bay for dinner.



Nice stop, 2009-09-12
Captain: , Seattle, WA (437)

We've stopped a couple of time now for lunch. No charge if you're out by two. Nice new docks this time with more space. Side tie.

Short walk up to the main street with lots of places for lunch. We like fish and chips at Rock Cod Cafe. Also great bread and other baked goods.



Friendly Marina, 2009-07-08
Captain: , Cowiche, WA (350)

We went to Cowichan Bay Marina the first time this summer 09. Very friendly location, clean showers and restrooms and the best fresh prawns right from the bay. Don't bring food, buy the local bread, cheese, baked goods and seafood. Very laid back and a little funky but we loved this place.



Cowichan Bay, 2009-05-21
Captain: , Blakely Island, WA (372)

Great place to stop, lot's of restaurants and shops in a very friendly little town. The marina is a mix of recreational and commercial boats. Good facilities and friendly staff.
