Nootka and Kyuquot Sounds are the next step for sea kayakers who have enjoyed the Gulf Islands, the Sunshine Coast, Desolation Sound and the Broken Islands. Its wetter weather and more rugged coastline offer greater challenges as well as the rewards of pristine sandy beaches, remote islands, sea caves, rare sea otters, and historic sites. Although not quite the wilderness it was in the days of the explorers and fur traders, for those with the necessary skills, it comes close to the age old Canadian dream of wilderness and freedom.

The book breaks the area down into 49 trips. These are just suggestions for planning purposes. Once out there, wind and weather will dictate where you go depending on your skill level. You'll have a more comfortable trip if you read the weather and trip planning sections before you finalize too much.
