Tucked in between the Gold and Heber Rivers on Vancouver Island, The Gateway to Historic Nootka Sound on Canada’s pacific coast, this is where the road ends and true Canadian wilderness begins. Easy ocean access to the world’s best salmon and halibut fishing. Wilderness and wildlife abound; this is the land of discovery!
