That sounds awesome! Good idea! So wine tasting is free at all the wineries? Is it only restricted to patrons that stay at that hotel?

go for a walk on Bowen Isl. Hop on the ship from Horseshoe bay and be there in around 20-25 min. I think it's only $10 for rtn tickets.

+1 for this if you're on a budget. Lots of B&Bs. Don't plan to walk much unless you're in really good shape, though, as Bowen is REALLY hilly. That said, there are lots of cool shops and restaurants and galleries and such right there in Snug Cove, within 10-15 minutes' walk of the ferry slip.

Also lots of really great views around the island, but you WILL probably want to drive.
