Welcome to Nootka Sound, Canada’s West Coast Fishing Mecca
With steep, heavily forested mountains bordering deep protected inlets and multitudes of sheltered coves and bays, Nootka Sound and Esperanza Inlet on the west coast of Vancouver Island is a true west coast fishing mecca.
Experience the Thrill of Angling
Between May and September, our Chinook (King) and Coho (Silver) salmon returns are abundant, with much of the best fishing mere minutes from our three resorts.
If you’re looking to hook into one of the most sought-after bottom fish in the Pacific, we are also on prime Halibut fishing grounds and regularly pull in delectable Lingcod, Pacific rockfish, and other delicious species.
Between August and September, our resorts are within reach of the annual Albacore tuna run – a thrilling bucket list experience.
Fish on the largest, most comfortable fleet of guide boats on the west coast of Vancouver Island – our 28-32ft enclosed cabin fibreglass boats are state of the art, and our highly experienced, professional guide team is passionate about fishing.
