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's a fantastic comment we received from Ann after her kayak vacation last August, her second Vancouver Island Kayak tour.

Scott, As we spoke earlier I can't thank you enough for being the facilitator in what truly has to be the best or at at least one of the best holidays of my life.  I only say one as my husband is not here and I wish he could have experienced the wonders of British Columbia nature first hand.

I had two wonderful but very different kayak trips.  The first to the Broken Island Group and the second up here in Port Mc Neil.  I enjoyed both for different reasons.  Different geographies. Wildlife and also fellow travellers on the trip but both wonderfully well organised and the natural beauty of this place speaks for itself.
