Are you ready for a West Coast Adventure Cruise?

The MV Uchuck III travels to the remote village of Kyuquot weekly (year round) to deliver much needed groceries and supplies. Enjoy the scenery and wildlife as the MV Uchuck III and her crew deftly navigate the waterways and islands to deliver cargo and passengers on route.

Bring your binoculars and camera! Passengers can expect to see a variety of marine life from bald eagles to sea lions, sea otters and on occasion, even whales. You might have the opportunity to see a kayak ‘wet launch’ when they are lowered on a raft from the ship’s deck at a remote location along the route. Make sure to bring your camera, tablet or cellphone, whatever is your preferred way to take photos or videos of your trip aboard the MV Uchuck III. Stops are made if the vessel comes across a raft of sea otters or whales.

The MV Uchuck III’s friendly and knowledgeable crew, comfortable wood finished lounge, galley and upper deck seating make this marine cruise a perfect way to spend a relaxing day on Vancouver Island’s West Coast. Informative announcements are made along the route at locations of interest.

Follow your nose to the Galley! Our cook prepares hardy West Coast fare daily, including homemade soups, sandwiches or chili. Enjoy muffins hot from the oven and an assortment of other baked goodies along with freshly brewed coffee, all at reasonable prices. You are more than welcome to pack your own snacks and/or meals especially if you have dietary needs. Our kitchen is small and the cook does her best but space is limited. 

Do you have a LIFE-THREATENING Food Allergy?

Let us know and please bring your EpiPen. Please understand that our trip is remote in nature and we are limited in our menu selection.  


If you have serious health issues, please do not hesitate to bring your own goodies and snacks.

Please be advised that food prepared here may contain these ingredients: Milk, eggs, wheat, soybean, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish.

When considering this Vancouver Island Adventure Cruise keep in mind that the Village of Kyuquot is a remote destination and does not offer the amenities and conveniences you’d find in larger centres. It does offer comfortable chalet style accommodations that reflect the Vancouver Island remote West Coast style of living. Guests with walking disabilities may find this marine tour difficult. Transportation to and from some of the accommodations is by small boat and there are always plenty of stairs. Trip includes accommodations, dinner and breakfast.
