Union Bay is an area of about 1200 people about 10-15 minutes south of the central Comox Valley. It now relies on shellfish taken from Baynes Sound for its economic vitality. A number of the historic buildings were relocated and restored by the Union Bay Historical Society. They can be viewed along Heritage Row just off of highway 19A.
Union Bay dates back to 1887.
Union Bay was once a deep-water port that was used to load coal taken from the mines of the Union Coal Company in Cumberland. At the time, the two areas were connected by a 13 mile railway. At the peak of the operation, this area was home to about 10,000 people. The last sailing ship to carry coal out of this area left in 1946 but smaller freighters and barges continued to be used into the 1950s.
Head down highway 19A along the scenic coastline about 10-15 minutes from Courtenay and find the Union Bay area. Look out across the water and see Denman and Hornby island as you drive south. Many of the residential areas have a rural flavour to them and quite a few have views of the ocean. Worth a drive south to explore the variety that this area has to offer.
