Description of Fair Harbour

Fair Harbour is situated on the north-west Coast of Vancouver Island, in Kyuquot Channel between Nootka Sound and Brooks Peninsula. This harbour is an ocean gateway to kayaking, fishing, bird watching, camping and exploring historical sites including whaling stations at Cashalot Inlet and Battle Bay in Ookinish Inlet.

Fair Harbour offers no services, other than a government dock, a rough boat launch ramp, an unsupervised campsite, and ample parking for vehicles. The federal dock in Fair Harbour is the launching point for exploring Kyuquot Sound, Checleset Bay Ecological Reserve, and Brooks Peninsula Provincial Park. Sea kayakers should beware the fury of the winds and surf, especially at Cape Cook and Clerke Point.

The closest community to Fair Harbour is the remote native Indian village of Kyuquot. The area is steeped in the history and culture of the Nuu-chah-nulth Indian Peoples, and ancient village sites, and fallen totem poles are found in the area.

Most people on our kayak tours of central Vancouver Island stay overnight in Zeballos.

The weather in Fair Harbour is the same as the weather in Zeballos.

Here in Victoria the snow is dissipating which we hope is a sign that spring is around the corner. While many others remain locked in winter's grasp, most everyone (except for the die-hard skiers) are thinking of warmer weather. And from my corner of the world, this translates to kayak vacations. In particular, our trips to Haida Gwaii, Johnstone Strait and Broken Group are gathering speed, with a number of departures sold out and some others having one or two seats remaining. Please use our search engine to select a date and trip - if the departure you want is booked please let me know.  If the demand is there, I might be able to put on another departure.
