Wineries & Wine Tours
In the heart of the Comox Valley, on a slope facing the Georgia Strait, 40 Knots Vineyard & Estate Winery crafts wines distinctly shaped by a windswept, sun-soaked microclimate. Named for the gale force winds that often strike the coast, 40 Knots embraces its unique microclimate, adorning its label with swallows that frequent the vineyard and depict home to a sailor. With wines like Whitecaps, Sea Haven, and Spindrift, the connection to the wind and sea is undeniable. 40 Knots was first established in 2005, by a retired Tug Boat Captain who hand planted over 50,000 vines on glacier till soil in a micro-climate hotter than its surrounding area and facing the Salish Sea. Root stock was brought in from the Champagne and Cote D’Beaune regions of France of Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gamay Noir. Additionally hybrids such as the French Pinot Auxerrois and German Siegerrebe and Schoenberger were planted. Owners Brenda Hetman-Craig, and Layne Robert Craig continue to nurture this terroir with environmentally ethical farming practices. 40 Knots employs the creative, innovative and esteemed Chief Wine Maker Matt Dumayne of Okanagan Crush pad. 40 Knots welcomes visitors to come and taste their wines in their cellar tasting lounge, tour the vineyard and cellar and picnic in the beautiful vineyard terrace.

Hiking, Parks & Wilderness Areas, Campgrounds & RV Parks
Strathcona Provincial Park, designated in 1911, is the oldest provincial park in British Columbia. Located almost in the centre of Vancouver Island, Strathcona park is a rugged mountain wilderness comprising more than 250,000 hectares. Mountain peaks some perpetually mantled with snow dominate the park. Lakes and alpine tarns dot a landscape laced with rivers, creeks and streams. To see and enjoy much of the scenic splendour means lacing up your hiking boots to backpack through the dense forests, stunning sub-alpine and alpine regions. While the high mountain peaks and deep shaded valleys of Strathcona Park are dramatic, it is easy to forget that beneath your feet lays a history stretching back 380 million years. Two areas Buttle Lake and vicinity and Forbidden Plateau offer a variety of visitor-oriented developments. The rest of the park is largely undeveloped and appeals primarily to people seeking wilderness surroundings.

At Coastal Springs Float Lodge we offer a relaxed, intimate fly-in salmon fishing experience. Our full service lodge has been in operation for over three decades and is located on the central British Columbia coast amid the splendor of Knight Inlet and Blackfish Sound. Our protected location lets us take advantage of glass calm waters unavailable to most other lodges in British Columbia. This combined with a lodge designed to accommodate smaller groups makes Coastal Springs Float Lodge the premier salmon fishing experience in British Columbia.We have kept our operation at Coastal Springs small in order to provide an intimate, family style atmosphere. We emphatically reject the high capacity people farm model of operation as we only take 8 guests at a time. With a group of 6 or more you can reserve the lodge for your party exclusively.The lodge is appointed with 5 comfortable guest rooms featuring twin beds and sinks, three full service washrooms with shower, a common dining/living area, hot tub and very large deck space.Our chef prepares all meals from scratch and the menu is an ever-changing assortment of fresh caught seafood, meat, and vegetarian dishes. The culinary experience at the lodge is simply second to none. Nothing quite feels as satisfying as an incredible meal after a long day on the water slaying fish. We of course can accommodate any and all dietary requirements and restrictions if given notice.
