Additional Experiences

We’re not all about fishing, all of the time. We get excited when we hear from folks who are also interested in seeing and exploring Nootka Sound through other experiences!

We have paddleboards, kayaks and surfboards on site that are ready for adventure. Beach combing, historical tours at friendly cove and hiking Nootka Island to name a few are all activities that we are happy to facilitate!


Wildlife abounds here, including bears, whales, eagles, sea otters, wolves and much more! Nootka Sound will leave you speechless – there is an endless variety of wilderness, wildlife and history to experience.


Nootka Island offers the best opportunity for uncrowded waves on the entire West Coast of Vancouver Island. Although the prime swell season spans from October-May, there are many days during the summer where some great waves are to be had. We have a diverse selection of Surfboards at the lodge for those that are interested in taking a break from fishing to paddle into a few waves, likely all by yourself!

We are proud to offer surf trips in the fall and spring seasons for those interested in joining us for a dedicated surfing adventure! Imagine just you and 7 others chasing waves on some of the most rugged, untouched coast in Canada, all while enjoying the luxurious amenities and service the Nootka Wilderness Lodge has built a reputation around.
