Victoria can be reached by air or by ferry. B.C. Ferries from Tsawassen (just south of Vancouver) to Schwartz Bay (just north of Victoria). Washington State Ferries from Anacortes to Sidney. Black Ball Ferries, from Port Angeles to Victoria's inner harbour.

Nanaimo can be reached by air (Cassidy Airport), or B.C. Ferries from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay, or from Tsawassen to Duke Point, just south of Nanaimo.

Exits from the Island Highway are well marked whether approaching from the north or south. Once off the highway visitors have about a ten minute drive through countryside and farm land before reaching the village.

Boaters arriving from the United States are required to check in with Canada Customs and Immigration as soon as possible after crossing the International Boundry, generally at Bedwell Harbor, Sidney or Victoria.

Float planes can be chartered into Cowichan Bay from Vancouver or Seattle, but there are no scheduled flights to the Bay.
