About Cowichan Bay Marine Gateway

This is an official BC Marine Trails launch site. There is a kayak dock built here by the Cowichan Valley Regional Distict in 2013. with two or three slips for kayaks. The user has to enter their kayak from the dock. There is also a small beach nearby. This launch gives you access to the Gulf Islands Marine Trail.

Nearest Campsite

The nearest campsite is a BC Marine Trails provincial recreation site called Musgrave Point.

Site Data

The Cowichan Bay Marine Gateway can be found on the BC Marine Trails main map.

Admittedly, I prefer the beach but I appreciate that the CVRD put in this dock for kayakers. It allows the nearby boat ramp to be used by boaters.
