A West Coast Adventure Awaits
Relax and explore the beautiful scenery on the west coast of Vancouver Island, BC aboard the MV Uchuck III, a 136-foot passenger and freight vessel which provides service through historic Nootka, Esperanza, and Kyuquot Sounds.
As a day cruise passenger, a sea kayaker or overnight passenger on this working coastal vessel, you’ll get to experience the day-to-day events of life on the coast and explore the shores and waterways of historic Nootka Sound. Learn more about the rich history of the Uchuck III, a converted minesweeper from WW2, and the local villages it frequents.
Learn more about the Nootka Sound First Nations on your Vancouver Island adventure tour and stop in at the villages of Esperanza, Friendly Cove, Kyuquot, Tahsis, and Zeballos off of Vancouver Island’s West Coast. Nootka Sound 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! Our marine tour schedule offers both day and overnight cruises through some of Vancouver Island’s most spectacular scenery, perfect for a short West Coast adventure tour or family vacation.
