Safety, social, environmental and emergency response (oil spill only) are our primary issues with freighters anchoring in Cowichan Bay. Then there are the conflicts arising from the tranquility of the bay with no freighters and the disruption of the bay with freighters.
Refer to the pages on Issues and Conflicts for an explanation of our concerns in the afore mention topics.
If you have issues with either light or noise from the ships at anchor please contact the Pacific Pilotage Authority, Victoria Dispatch. The number can be found on their web site from the following link. PPA contact number
