I took my mother on the Nootka sound day trip. It was amazing, we had beautiful warm weather for most of the trip, on the way back it started to rain but that was okay. The best part was at Friendly cove where you are allowed off the boat for awhile (an hour and half I think). Because a friend of mine had been on the trip before I knew after getting off the boat to follow the trail up and over a hill where you can do a self-guided tour of a old church. Then you must keep going and go a short, steep trail to what is called Pebble Beach which is on the open Pacific ocean. If you are lucky enough to visit when it is a warm day you should sit/lie down on the beach, the sun warms the pebbles and it is just a marvelous feeling with the waves crashing on beach it doesn't get any better than that. All of the crew members are very friendly and willing to answer any questions, they will also inform you if they see any wildlife. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
