Apr 29 @ 10:30 am – 2:30 pm
Guided Hike

Coastal Explore

Traverse the rugged trail along Bowen’s wild coast

Even though this outing is close to inhabited areas, be transported to what feels like the end of the earth. Located on the “drier” side of the island, the stark geological formations and windswept trees provide a more Mediterranean vibe than the typical coastal rainforest.

Walk under open skies along this footpath that navigates atop exposed rocky bluffs of the coastline. As we trek from point to point, you will enjoy the ocean views and wildlife spotting. We will choose a suitable spot to rest for a picnic and take in the stunning scenery. At low tide, we will scramble down to the water’s edge to investigate tidal pools and secluded coves. Upon returning to the Cove, we will celebrate our adventure with a treat at a local’s favourite hangout.

Line Up for Fun (Slacklining)
May 5 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
3-hour Slacklining Lesson

Line Up for Fun

Get ready to laugh as you take your turn at walking the line

Under the canopy of majestic trees, try your hand (or should we say “feet”) at this addictive sport. During this adventure, you will help rig up the line and learn the basics of getting on and taking your first steps. Each time you step up, you will find something to celebrate – staying on one second longer, taking one step further. Every small progression sparks your enthusiasm to get on again and again. Slacklining requires a zen-like quality of clearing your mind and tuning into your body, however, mostly it invites you to pay attention. What you will remember is how much fun you had. Once back in the Cove, we will unwind with a special ice cold treat at one of Bowen’s favourite hangouts.

Relaxing Cruise

Sunset Sail

Join the crew of SV Oz II for a magical evening of sailing on the Salish Sea to enjoy the sunset and scenery

Watching the sun set over the ocean is one of nature’s most effective relaxants. After a day of playing outside on Bowen, this is the perfect way to enjoy the glow of a summer evening. Gather your family or friends, or meet some new ones aboard a 41′ sailing vessel, to experience the enchantment of being at sea. While on board, keep an eye out for playful seals, soaring eagles, and other wildlife.

Your experience includes:
• A complimentary glass of local kombucha, wine, or craft beer
• An opportunity for an ocean dip
• A unique perspective from which to enjoy island life
