Comox Fisherman's Wharf

Comox Fisherman's Wharf

There are many famous Fisherman's Wharfs around the world. They are colourful, busy places. Comox Fisherman's Wharf is one of those places. Like so many other locals, I love going there to walk on the pier. It's a visual smorgasbord - especially for artists looking to sketch a scene or take a photo.

I'll bet every fisherman has a book of stories to tell about his or her adventures out on the saltchuck, bringing in their catch. It must be rewarding, hard work.

For those interested, you may keep tabs on local fish sales and when to visit. Information on direct fish sales are posted on the Comox Valley Harbour Authority Fisherman's Wharf website  along with tips for the public on buying fish from the dock. There is also an option to sign up for email notifications on when seasonal products become available. According to the website, the following seafoods are generally available when in season: shrimp, prawns, halibut, cod, salmon, and tuna.

I love to spot the eagles that perch high above the dock. Some eagles sit for a long time, checking out the fishy morsels below. I saw one sit for about an hour the other day, perched along the walkway, watching all the local activity.

Of course, there's also lots to do at the adjacent Comox Marina Park. Activities include boat rentals, sailing lessons, a waterpark, and a playground. It's a great way to pass the time. In fact, I don't know why I don't go there more often.

Thanks for visiting!
