The Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre & Cowichan Wooden Boat Society

The Society was originally conceived in the 1980s as a wooden boat building workshop but has expanded its role to become a museum. In addition to the exhibits and museum, the Maritime Centre holds wooden boat building courses for adults and children in its workshop. The Society also operates an historic marine ways for the hauling and cleaning of boats and maintains a small fleet of traditional small craft.

The first three pier exhibits are open at each end which allows the public to walk through and view the displays. The end gallery is a two level enclosed unit which contains many of the more environmentally sensitive artifacts such as model boats, pictures and a marine library.

In addition to the exhibits and museum the Centre holds wooden boat building classes in it’s superbly equipped workshop.
