    Area Data

    Nutchatlitz Provincial Park

    Nuchatlitz Provincial Park is located on the west coast of Vancouver Island on the northwest side of Nootka Island, facing Nuchatlitz Inlet. The park contains approximately 2,105 hectares (5,202 acres) and was established in 1996.

    Nootka Island

    Nootka Island is the largest island located on the remote west coast of Vancouver Island and is approximately 510 sq. km (200 sq. miles) in area. It is separated from Vancouver Island by Nootka Sound and its side inlets. The island and surrounding sounds and inlets provide a paradise for sport anglers and outdoor adventurers seeking to explore and enjoy the wilderness surroundings.

    Zeballos

    Zeballos is a deep-sea port surrounded by rugged mountains and forests, located on the Zeballos River delta, at the end of Zeballos Inlet within the territory of the Ehattesaht Chinehkint First Nation. It is accessible via Highway 19, about a 2.5-hour drive north from Campbell River. Zeballos is relatively close to nearby Nootka Sound and Kyuquot Sound, making it a popular "jump-off" point for tourists and sport anglers.

    Tahsis

    Tahsis is a village municipality on the west coast of Vancouver Island approximately 300 km (186 miles) northwest of the BC provincial capital city of Victoria. The economy of Tahsis used to be dependent on forestry, but following the 2001 closure of the local sawmill, the economy became heavily dependent on salmon and halibut sport fishing, outdoor recreation and tourism.

    The village is situated at the head of the steep-sided Tahsis Inlet, which is part of Nootka Sound. The Tahsis inlet is protected from Pacific storms by its geography, making the docking facilities an asset.
