Nootka Marine Adventures Announces a New Partnership with Chef William Lew

Introducing William Lew as Nootka Marine Adventures’ new Executive Chef

We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with renowned British Columbian Chef William Lew! A new menu and unique culinary experience await Nootka Marine Adventures guests in the 2021 season.

Chef Lew is the former Executive Chef for Ocean Wise and Notch8 at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. He is known for his love of fresh, sustainable ingredients and using food in unique ways to convey emotion and tell stories. This exciting collaboration will bring him out of the city and into the wilderness of Nootka Sound.

Chef Lew says, “I can’t wait to begin working with Nootka Marine Adventures, creating menus with the resort chefs that focus on sustainability, premium ingredients and elevated offerings to create a magical experience for our guests.”

Moutcha Bay Resort features the Conuma Grill, a comfortable and cozy family restaurant that celebrates fresh and locally sourced ingredients and with expansive patio seating and ocean views. Nootka Sound Resort and Newton Cove Resort offer four- and five-course dinners respectively, to all-inclusive package stays. Chef Lew will oversee the culinary program at each of the three resorts.

“We’re very excited to get started with Chef Will Lew,” says General Manager Jason Johnson. “He sees food as an art form, a way to inspire people and tell an important story of sustainability and the natural world. At Nootka Marine Adventures, our continual goal is to exceed expectations and create long-lasting memories for our guests. The culinary journey is an essential part of that experience.”

Chef Lew’s position as Nootka Marine Adventures’ new Executive Chef began in January 2021.
