Cheers Cowichan  has paired up with  Ocean EcoVentures Whale Watching  to offer a true taste of the Cowichan Valley – Wine, Whales and Wildlife! Whether you are on a couples getaway or having your dream wedding we will share the best that Cowichan has to offer.

Cowichan means “The Warm Land” in the Coast Salish language and is graced with the warmest mean temperature in Canada.  With these Mediterranean-like temperatures, glacial soil and an ideal amount of of rain, Cowichan climate offers ideal growing conditions for grapes and other fruits and vegetables.  Award winning wineries craft brew masters, distillers, cider makers, chefs, cheese makers, bakers, foragers, specialty food producers, and organic farmers work together to produce some of the most sumptuous food and drink anywhere.

Cowichan is the best departure point on Vancouver Island to experience the whales and wildlife of the Salish Sea. On any given day you can witness killer whales, humpback whales, minke whales, steller sea lions, bald eagles and many different species of marine birds.

Start and finish your day in the quaint seaside village of Cowichan Bay with a choice between three amazing packages.
