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. The harbour, which has a government wharf, is the launching point for exploring Kyuquot Sound, Checleset Bay Ecological Reserve, and Brooks Peninsula Provincial Park.

Fair Harbour is in the traditional territory of the Kyuquot Checklesaht First Nations. The closest community to Fair Harbour is the remote indigenous 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.

Sea kayakers should beware the fury of the winds and surf, especially at Cape Cook and Clerke Point. 

Fair Harbour Marina and Campground has gone through an extensive upgrade and offers several services including a campground, rental cabins, convenience store (with kayaking supplies), potable water, washrooms, showers, laundry facilities, fuel dock, kayak launching area and boat ramp. Fair Harbour is in the traditional territory of the Kyuquot Checklesaht First Nations.

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