Fanny Bay BC is a small rural community on Vancouver Island near the Comox Valley, located on Baynes Sound. It is particularly known for its farmed shellfish, the famous Fanny Bay oysters, as well as manila clams, savory clams, and mussels, exported far and wide around the world. The introduction of oysters in the area goes back as far as 1912-1913.
Rosewell Creek Provincial Park nearby offers a great hike, mostly along the river, to a waterfall. Go underground at Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park, just 20 km from Fanny Bay, and enjoy a unique adventure, now available year round. From spelunking to exploring the tides and creatures of the ocean, you should check out the Deep Bay Marine Field Station in nearby Bowser. Explore a local candlemaker’s shop, or wander the beaches with your binoculars and add that shore bird you hadn’t seen yet to your life list.
