      When spring nudges the cooler months aside, Vancouver Island’s Comox Valley offers all the promise of a season filled with longer days and milder conditions.

      The three distinct communities of Courtenay, Comox and Cumberland are easily accessible by hopping on a ferry to Nanaimo or arrive in style by landing on the local waters by floatplane from the Lower Mainland.

      Whether it’s afternoons spent on or beside the ocean, teeing off on glistening greens, absorbing culture through unique experiences, or walking through nature in bloom, there’s perhaps the widest range of activities to enjoy at this time of year.

      Take your pick, from scenic water activities on coastal waters and rivers, or beachcombing with close up encounters of marine wildlife. Discover immersive cultural experiences through museums and galleries. Sample delicious local fare and drinks in one of the many cafes, restaurants, breweries, and wineries.

      With kilometres of coastline, rivers, and lakes, getting on to the water is a favourite outing for many. Standup paddle boarding and sea kayaking allows hands on gliding on often-calm expanses of coastal waters. Paddling a little way offshore gets you up close to aquatic wildlife and marine birds, or simply to enjoy a sunset over the magnificent Comox Glacier from a completely unique angle.

      Claim a round of nine or 18 holes at one of our six impressive golf courses set in spectacular surroundings. Gather a tote bag full of local produce at the renowned Comox Valley Farmers’ Market, which is held outdoors as of April 8th at the Exhibition Grounds in Courtenay. Here local food, crafts, and music combine each Saturday.

      Take in patio season! Whether it’s a leisurely Sunday morning brunch turning into afternoon lounging, or a round of drinks and light bites with friends post-biking, the Comox Valley is ready to host you on your next adventure.
