Landon’s Cruising Report – Cowichan Valley
Another hop and a skip south, we arrived at Maple Bay Marina via Sansum Narrows. Maple Bay, Genoa Bay, Cowichan Bay, and the inland city of Duncan make up the greater Cowichan Valley area on Vancouver Island. Duncan is known for its excellent Farmer’s Market, one of the best in western British Columbia thanks to the rich, fertile valley producing excellent vegetables, fruit, wine, and meat products. Our friends Bob and Shino arrived by boat at Maple Bay Marina to meet up with us, and together we went into Duncan to enjoy the Saturday Farmer’s Market held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Maple Bay Marina offers a shuttle service twice a day into town for a fee; but as we discovered, the van fills quickly and boaters should reserve space for the shuttle ahead of time. No worries, we called for the Duncan Taxi (250-746-4444) which was fast and efficient. ….read more of their adventures HERE.
