Wildlife Viewing

Popular wildlife activities in Cowichan include guided whale-watching tours and professional flying demonstrations at the Pacific Northwest Raptors. But there are also many self-guided wildlife viewing opportunities as well.

Spot Roosevelt Elk (found only on Vancouver Island) near the Town of Lake Cowichan and Youbou, visit one of many bird watching areas and nature estuarys, or look out for black bears on a guided hike in Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park.

Enjoy seeing the prolific marine life in the waters of the Salish Sea: watch harbour seals and sea lions lounging on the docks and spot wildlife from the deck of charter boat or while cruising the quiet waters of Cowchan’s many bays and inlets in a kayak.
