If you love water boats and wildlife, you have to visit here. A lot of history portrayed, very friendly people who are never in a hurry to answer any local questions. Peaceful and serene early or later in the day. Makes you want to own a boat!!

Lots to see if you take your time and are not put off by the lack of decor. Get close to little sea creatures, learn about the Cowichan Bay ecosystem, appreciate the bay more when you go back outside to admire the view. Very friendly staff.

Entry by donation. Some great models of boats and interesting history on Cow Bay and it's people and salmon, it's only a half hour attraction but well worth the visit. Hats off to those that organize and run it.

First time that I been back since the renovations. Very thrilled with everything they've done. Took friends with their kids that came in for a visit from the interior very happy times everyone enjoyed themselves. He said they're definitely be coming back for another visit and that was one of the highlights. Recommend it to traveler's as well as the locals good times.

excellent display of old boating artifacts, you can see the staff working on and restoring boats of various kinds, lots of old photos and scale models, native canoes and fishing boats. you can walk out on the wharf and get a great view of Cowichan bay. A must stop for the family.
