Comox is a town located on the eastern side of Vancouver Island, British Columbia in the Comox Valley. Comox itself is a quiet community on the ocean. At its heart is the Fisherman’s Wharf, which features a major marina with a public boardwalk perfect for viewing the boats that visit and work out of the Comox Harbour. Fresh seafood sales, right off the boat, add to the charm of this visitor friendly community.


The surrounding area is a collection of rolling mountains, alpine meadows, rushing rivers, pristine lakes, lush forests, fertile farms and more than 40 parks, mid way up the east coast of Vancouver Island, two and a half hours by car north of Victoria. Unique geography plus a year round temperate climate creates an exceptional location for hiking, horseback riding, boating, fishing, swimming, mountain biking, diving and camping. And only 20-minutes away is an alpine playground, Mount Washington, that receives some of the deepest snow in North America.


An international airport, with direct service to Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, and more destinations coming, makes the Comox Valley not just a holiday in itself but a gateway to the rest of Vancouver Island, too.
