Cruise, relax and explore the beautiful scenery on the west coast of Vancouver Island, BC aboard the MV Uchuck III, a 136-foot wooden hulled maritime vessel that provides passenger and freight service through historic Nootka Sound, Esperanza Inlet, and Kyuquot Sound. The MV Uchuck III is also used by intrepid kayakers who want to be wet launched at remote locations along the Uchuck's route.
Stops are made along the routes to drop off freight at remote fish farms, logging camps, resorts and maritime villages that rely on the MV Uchuck III as a lifeline as many of these remote destinations have no road access. Passengers enjoy watching the entire process, from maneuvering the vessel to remote docks to offloading freight from the cargo hold.
The west coast of Vancouver Island is home to black bears, eagles, sea otters, Pacific dolphins, gray whales and killer whales so be sure to bring your binoculars and your camera!
