Artist's Description

Cowichan Bay is a quaint seaside village on the south east coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The settlement started in the 1850s as a Hudson’s Bay Company fort, at the flats at the top of Cowichan Bay. It was the earliest development north of Victoria, with Europeans settling to farm and trap, and eventually moving into fishing and logging.

In 1862 the HMS Hecate arrived with a boatload of settlers,followed by a store and hotel .By 1900 Cowichan Bay was receiving tourists, with steamboats calling regularly at the government dock.
It’s a wonderful blend of all kinds of boats,piers,wharves,floating homes, and up on the hills, vineyards! You’ll find a great collection of creative,fun, and fascinating characters , along with excellent seafood and all kinds of water-based recreation.
All of it within easy reach of Victoria, Vancouver and the cities of the north-western USA.
