Moutcha Bay Resort

Designed for families and friends Open May to September

An Oceanfront Resort

Drive west along one of the most scenic highways in Canada through the spectacular mountainous landscape of Strathcona Park and the village of Gold River towards Moutcha Bay. Approximately 2 hours by road from Campbell River on Vancouver Island is Moutcha Bay Resort, on the waters of  Nootka Sound.


Anglers will find themselves landed in a fishing mecca at Moutcha Bay Resort, BC. Whether you are bringing your own boat, renting one from our fleet, or fishing with one of our professional guides, the salmon and bottom fishing in Nootka Sound is downright fantastic. If you are bringing your own boat, our onsite boat launch is complimentary to registered guests. Moutcha Bay Resort is central to the most consistent fishing anywhere on the west coast of BC with enormous migratory and homebound salmon runs every year. If you’d like to bring your catch home perfectly filleted and packaged, drop it off with the friendly team at our government certified fish processing facility, located in the lodge.

Adventures And Amenities

A range of activities and services are available at Moutcha Bay Resort, including world-class guided fishing for prized Chinook and halibut, rental boats, Wildlife & Heritage Tours, kayak & SUP rentals, children’s playground with a zipline, gift shop, communal barbecues, boat launch & moorage, dock shack, fuel sales, licensed fish processing facility, year-round boat storage and more. The historic Nootka Sound area is home to countless hiking and ATV trails, gorgeous cave systems, well-maintained boardwalks, and the walkable villages of Gold River and Tahsis. Or simply relax and take in the west coast views!


Choose one of our modern two-story guest suites in the main lodge, most of which include kitchen facilities and various sleeping configurations. The luxury yurts and chalets at Moutcha Bay Resort are perennial favourites, with gorgeous west coast ocean views and plenty of space for the whole family to relax and enjoy. Five newly built waterfront mini yurts sit right on the shores of Moutcha Bay. All of our guest rooms, luxury yurts, and chalets include fresh linens and full bathrooms.
