TravelPod Member ReviewsKingfisher Oceanside Resort and Spa Courtenay
An amazing place where their commitment to local, sustainable produce and high quality service makes the stay so fantastic.
The rooms are fun - Murphy beds mean that there's more space. But, you hardly need it, considering the lounge chairs by the ocean (or when it's cold, like it is now, you can go in the spa lounge) or the hot tub, steam caves, outdoor heated pool, or more are on offer. The spa is fantastic - amazing hydrotherapy (a MUST!!) with divine massages and services available for reservation.
The food is one of the greatest highlights. Local seafood, cheese, meats, bread...you name it, they have it. I definitely recommend that you book - the restaurant is a favourite with locals and tourists alike, and you may be waiting if you don't have a reservation. But, you MUST eat here...don't cheap out and go to McDonalds in Courtenay!!
Bring some good books and unwind...this place is ideal for getting away without it breaking the bank...and trust me, you'll feel a whole lot happier and relaxed than if you take a stressful flight for 12 hours somewhere else!!

... as ''oe-koe-leh-leh'' and not ''joe-koe-leh-leh''. After that, we watched different types of gypsy dancers taking us around India, eastern Europe, Turkey, Egypt and Iran. I couldn't really follow what was going on and it was a little weird (and sometimes awful music, but hey, we have awful carnavals music). Then we waited for Uminaro Taiko, a bunch of Japanese taiko drummers from Victoria. They were pretty energetic and it ...
... to Costco wholesale, which is like the Sligro, but then 100 times bigger! That was one hell of an experience (in a positive way)! We bought so much, we should have that in Holland.
+ We made our own oliebollen, yummy.
- It took some time to finish them.
+ The girls are funny.
+ Our nails were painted by the girls.
+ I bought 2 articles of clothing for only 10 bucks! Cheap cheap cheap.
... and douglas fir. Early again for the next ferry but walked around and watched the smaller vessel come in. All aboard and off to Saltry Bay - a shorter trip but just as scenic. Off and driving for another hour until we came to Lund, a pretty little cove, full of boats where the water taxi services the nearby islands. Very low tide so steep ramp to get all our stuff down and Chris took the car to ...
... to Comox without incident and right as we were anchoring, lo and behold a SHRIMP boat was going into the Marina. Oh boy was I excited. About an hour later after we got things squared away we were on our way. We found the boat and purchased 3lbs of fresh to death large coonstriped shrimp. Being the badass I would like to think I am, I decided that I wanted to try to eat some of them with the heads on. I had never tried it and figured what better ...
... up immunity to it without getting sick. Red-fronted Coot, Red-gartered Coot and White-winged Coot were the Chilean bird species we learned tonight. Only 464 more to learn in the next 9 days! Also need to figure out which date to pick the Navimag ferry. So much to do, so I better get off the blog and do something ...
