Between Victoria and Nanaimo on the east coast of Vancouver Island, the Cowichan enjoys Canada’s warmest mean temperature and is a haven for birdwatching, outdoor activities, and exploring local farmers markets.

Southern Vancouver Island is anchored by British Columbia’s capital city of Victoria. On the west coast, near Sooke, you’ll find windswept beaches and fishing opportunities minutes from the dock.
