Westcoast Nootka Island Adventure Package

The west coast of Vancouver Island is often referred to as the "Birthplace of British Columbia". This region was inhabited by First Nations peoples for centuries before European explorers discovered Nootka sound in the 1700's. Names such as Valdez, Bligh and James Cook bring visions of shipwrecks and battles at sea.

Following a 2 hour scenic drive from Campbell River you will board our coastguard approved 26 ft. Zodiac in the village of Tahsis. This fully guided 5 hour trip will take you through waters travelled by tall ships and native canoes over a century ago. Esperanza Inlet is a prime viewing location for large numbers of sea otters, black bears, bald eagles and humpback whales. Remnants of the past still exist in the old cannery sites at C.P.C. and Nootka Sound. At Friendly Cove, the site of Yuquot village and where James Cook first landed, you will be welcomed ashore to peruse this First Nations cultural site.

Package includes accomodation, meals at lodge, 2 days (approx. 5 hrs each) guided zodiac tours, use of all lodge facilities and First Nation Landing fees.
