Wild, rugged and beautiful

We visited the park, by boat, while on a fishing trip to Nootka Sound. During our visit we saw eagles and otters and, shortly after leaving the park waters we saw humpback whales. This is an area of rough waters, rugged shorelines and west coast weather.

Scam, Do not book

We booked a trip for 4 people. Doug said 50% deposit, they ran it for 100%. When we called he said it was mistake, and corrected. Then three weeks later Doug ran cc again without any authorization. Amazingly this happened right before he shut down operations for lack of cash flow. Doug told us to file with credit card company. He isn’t giving refunds, he is just making people file fraud charges. Worst part, Doug doesn’t think he has done anything wrong. Don’t book, we called other guides, they said this is common for Doug. He is well known these type of actions.We have over 1200 customers a season. It was our CC Provider First Data that put a hold on a deposit of $53K that was made through them on July 26th. We had no way of getting funds into our bank account so we had to suspend operations. To date over $500K has been refunded to customers. We have severed our relationship with First Data and are the process of suing them for what they did to us. I just want to emphasis that we have been in this business for 36 years and this problem was not of our making and we are doing everything we can to get our business back on track. There are many jealous guides in this business that are trying to throw us an anchor as we have been in this business a long time and we run a good show.

A Choice of Three Resorts

Nootka Marine Adventures operate three lodges in the historic Nootka Sound/Esperanza Inlet region of the west coast of Vancouver Island. Drive-in guests, like us, meet at the land-based Moutcha Bay Resort to stay there, or be transported to Nootka Sound Resort or Newton Cove Rersort, the two floating resorts. It's about a four-hour drive from the BC Ferry terminal in Nanaimo via Highway 19 North to Campbell River, then via paved Highway 28 West to Gold River, with about a further 43 kilometres of good gravel logging road to Moutcha Bay on the way to Tahsis. With the busy summer fishing season, it's a good idea to reserve a spot on the ferry, at least for the return leg of your trip at: 1 (888) 223-3779.Although we were going to Newton Cove Resort in Esperanza Inlet on the wilder northwest and much more remote side of Nootka Island, we enjoyed a night in Moutcha Bay Resort. During our water transfer to Newton Cove, we did take a short detour to see Nootka Sound Resort which was right on the way.While we could have flown in directly from Vancouver, we wouldn't have been able to see the three ruggedly spectacular inlets (Tlupana, Tahsis, and Esperanza) that make up Nootka Sound. The 90-minute water transfer was one of many highlights of our visit.Only two years old, Newton Cove Resort is permanently moored in a beautiful, protected cove just off Esperanza Inlet. The resort compares well with any of the really high-end fly-in fishing lodges along BC's west coast. While you can takes a air charter directly to the resort, the resort offers the same exceptional accommodations, food, and service, to drive-in guests while saving the cost of air fare. You can even bring your own boat for greater savings.We enjoyed fabulous fully guided fishing during our visit. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and Nootka Marine Adventures' sizeable fleet of 23- to 25-foot guide boats (including many Grady-White sport fishers), could comfortably and safely handle almost every kind of water from those inside the protected inlet, to some 17 miles offshore along the "Salmon Highway."On the Highway, my wife and I had no trouble catching our limits of salmon, along with a good number of willing bottomfish. Since all the resorts feature government-certified fish processing facilities, our catch was portioned, vacuum-packaged, flash-frozen, and packed into styrofoam coolers for our return home.If you have ever dreamed of fishing in a remote wilderness setting, at least one of the three Nootka Marine Adventures' lodges will fit your style and budget.

Ray’s Sport Fishing Charters

We fish out of Tahsis inlet were we have the option of going out Nootka Sound or Esperenza sound. I have been fishing the west coast from Kenai, Alaska to Victoria, BC since 1978. The fishing in this area is the best all around fishing bar none on the west coast. The salmon highway that we regularly fish is known by every guide on the west coast. Salmon, Halibut and bottom fish.

Gone fish'en

My family, my wife and 2 young adult kids, and I spend 4 of the best days of our 30 day trip to Vancouver area with Ray Chittenden going fishing. Besides catching more then enough salmon, Halibut and crab and eating the freshest fish possible, the time spent with Ray was outstanding. Greatest fishing guide ever, not just his knowledge of fishing but his company during dinner and beers on the barge. This was not just a been there, done that kind of trip. This was a been there and will repeat as many times as possible. So long Ray, and thanks for the fish!Thank you Larry always so much fun with your family.
