Archipelagos have a special attraction for paddlers and boaters alike, but nowhere is the attraction more magnificent than the West Coast of Vancouver Island, where the power of the ocean, the beauty of the land and the diversity of the environment meld in such drama. This amazing combination defines Nuchatlitz Provincial Park.
Nuchatlitz is the focal point for the North Nootka region, reached relatively easily from either Tahsis or Zeballos. It is also a gateway to many nearby opportunities for exploration on water, including Catala Island Provincial Park, Nuchatlitz Inlet and the more imposing outer shoreline of Nootka Island.
Tahsis and Zeballos provide good road access (by logging road standards, at least) with a full level of services including water taxi, which can remove the risk and anxiety of a transit. The inner waterways, by contrast, offer mountainous vistas, winding channels and enough attractions and campsites to be worthwhile on their own.
