A rugged coast, safe harbours, remote inlets, sandy beaches, rain forest, small islands, and wildlife that can include whales, sea lions, eagles, bears, and more, add to a visitor’s introduction to the Nootka Sound temperate marine environment.

Our itinerary explores this natural wonderland with their Spanish, English, and indigenous influences. Little has changed since Captain Cook visited the Sound in the late 1700s. We will stop at a working lighthouse, and an unique First Nations church with stained-glass windows depicting key historical events in the Nootka Sound area. The church also displays Mowachaht totems and artwork.

Although not as well known as other destinations, kayaking in Nootka Sound highlights significant historical developments here with a natural kayaking environment that will make your visit a truly memorable one.
