Our Sea Lions have once again returned to Cowichan Bay, and we are featuring an overnight package that includes your accommodation and a boat tour with Tim of Greylag Boat tours to see these magnificent animals. Despite the “barking” from the Sea Lions, your comfort is taken care of with a set of ear plugs if necessary. Did you know there are four names for a “group of sea lions”?
When they are on land, they are “a colony”; when they are in the water they are “a raft”; during their breeding season they are “a rookery”; and when several females are in one male’s territory they are “a harem”.
The holiday season is also approaching very quickly, please see our facebook page for our calendar of events.
As we continue to enjoy the fall weather, the Oceanfront Suites is a great little escape from Victoria or Nanaimo for a weekend. In a couple weeks we will have our Sea Lion visitors on the docks out front of the hotel, and apart from being a little noisy; they provide an educational and marine sea life viewing opportunity like no other. We are partnering with Greylag Boat Tours in Cowichan Bay, to provide our guests with up close viewing of these amazing animals.
The local grape and apple harvests are currently taking place, why not come and visit the Cowichan Valley, and experience everything we have to offer? Give us a call, and we would be pleased to help you book your accommodation, and provide you with ideas on how to spend the day exploring our area.
Enjoy the harvest season and we hope to see you soon,
