Absolutely Fabulous. Captain Tim was superb. Our 13 year old Triplets are still taking about their voyage, catching crab and spotting the local wildlife. A must for ANYONE visiting the area. Thanks again Captain Tim.

Captain Tim is kind, knowledgable and his boat is beautifully restored and very comfortable. I highly recommend this shuttle service if you are eating at the cafe and I'm sure he gives a great tour too. He obviously knows the area well. Hidden gem.

If you’re in Cowichan Bay suggest you take the shuttle over to Genoa Bay for lunch over looking the Bay, good fun, 30 minute ride and beautiful views enroute. The Captain Tim can answer all your questions about the area.
