Our Commitment To You

In response to the development of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to following the advice and guidance of leading health agencies and governments, taking every necessary step to maintain a safe environment for our guests and staff.

Book Worry Free

We want you to plan your trip with peace of mind.

If you are affected by travel restrictions imposed by provincial, federal or governing bodies, Nootka Marine Adventures will offer you the chance to change or cancel your booking without penalty. International guests affected by ongoing border travel restrictions will be contacted and offered an opportunity to move, cancel, or keep their booking by April 1, 2021. If you are experiencing hardship as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we will be happy to address your bookings on a case by case basis. We have your best interest in mind and understand every situation is different.

We are also aware that recommendations from health authorities are constantly changing and developing. Please note that this policy is subject to change over time.

Upcoming 2021 Season

Looking ahead, all three Resorts are scheduled to re-open in the spring of 2021.

Moutcha Bay Resort is scheduled to resume summer operations on May 1, 2021 with all accommodation options available for booking.

We will be monitoring the situation and garnering insight and advice from industry and health experts, making additions and enhancements to our protocol in the weeks and months ahead with your safety and that of our staff in mind. We will be posting our 2021 summer season protocol on this page closer to our opening dates.
