Journey through First Nations traditional territories: choose scenic cruising through the calm rainforested inlets and thousands of islands that make up Clayoquot and Barkley Sound, or experience the rugged wave-swept outer coast; the full expanse of the Pacific Ocean on one side and the scenic coastal mountains of Vancouver Island on the other.
Natural & Human History
Visit local historical sites and take a glimpse at the unique natural history of the area; peek into old-growth rainforests, find clues from the last Ice Age or float amongst magnificent kelp forests.
Wildlife & Ecosystems
Each of these different landscapes is home to various species of wildlife; from black bears foraging along the inlet shorelines, grey whales feeding in coastal bays, sea lions resting between fishing trips, seals, sea otters and dozens of species of birds.
