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. Magnificent forested mountains, pristine freshwater lakes and rivers make the region an outdoors lover’s paradise. The famed 40-kilometre Nootka Trail offers a memorable challenge to backpackers every year. For history lovers, the area is considered to be the birthplace of British Columbia as Captain James Cook was the first European to set foot on BC soil in the spring of 1778. Nootka Sound was also the site of the historically important Nootka Crisis in the late 18th century and it has been home to a National Historic Site, Yuquot, since 1923.
Amazing Fishing in Nootka Sound
And of course, anglers will find themselves landed in a fishing mecca at Moutcha Bay Resort. 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.
Dine at the Conuma Grill Restaurant
During your stay, unwind at the Conuma Grill on the main floor of the lodge. Our licensed restaurant offers an affordable, locally-sourced menu with a la carte breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Take in the evening ocean views over a glass of B.C. wine or local craft beer. We would love to serve you.
