Cowichan waters

BC wilderness near Cowican river, BC

The Town of Lake Cowichan, BC, is located 31 kilometers west of Duncan at the beginning of the Cowichan River. Cowichan Lake is one of the largest bodies of fresh water on Vancouver Island making it great for water sports. This large body of water is surrounded by the most magnificent mountains that allow for fresh, clean rain fall water to fill the lake. As the summer carries on, the water level will lower in the river, which will unveil more of the rivers natural beauty.


BC forest near Cowichan Lake, British Columbia

The Lake is 30km long, has a perimeter 60km and has depths that have not yet been discovered! There is also rumor of an animal known as the Stin-qua that lives in the area of the lake called the narrows. Rumor has it that it is a serpent like monster, is over 50 feet tall and is capable of breaking canoes in half. For those visiting, this creature is nothing to worry about because the area in which he resides is near the middle of the lake.

Start and End Locations:

There are many places on the river where a tubing trip can be started. The two most popular spots are Saywell and Central Park. Both parks offer easy access to the water and the only difference is the amount of time your trip will take. If you want to launch from Saywell Park you would have to walk roughly five minutes up the street in return for approximately thirty more minutes of tubing. The next option, Central Park, will give you a trip of roughly one and half hours. The benefit to this location is that it is located right across the street from our location and will have you in the water that much faster.

Because of the rocky terrain of the river bed and the amount of time that is spent in the sun, we recommend that you bring the following:

  • Sunscreen
  • Sandals or foot protection
  • Sunglasses
  • Water
  • Hat
