The regions of the West Coast of Vancouver Island are known for their rugged and remote landscapes, dramatic outer reefs, long expanses of pristine beaches and a wide variety of indigenous wildlife. Marine wildlife in this area includes killer whales (Orca), gray whales, seals, porpoises and sea otters as well as an abundance of black bear, cougar, deer and other land dwelling species. The stunning scenery, attracting anglers, kayakers, divers, campers and outdoor adventure enthusiasts to the wilderness area, enhances this isolation.
The fishing, kayaking and other recreational adventure in these regions are outstanding. Sheltered bays and protected coves in and amongst the islets provide for hours of exploration and relaxed quiet tranquility as your kayak glides effortlessly through the stilled waters. The waters themselves offer an abundance of large Chinook Salmon as well as some of the smaller salmon species and an impressive variety of bottom and deep-sea fish from Halibut, Red Snapper and Ling Cod to Black Sea Bass, Skate, Prawns and salt-water varieties of crab.
Access to these remote locations is by floatplane or by boat from the small towns which dot the west coast – Bamfield; Uclulet and Tofino; Gold River; Tahsis and Zeballos.
