Eco adventure opportunities are on trend for vacations. Whether you’re planning a corporate retreat or family trip, Eagle Nook Resort in Barkley Sound is the place to experience a private charter for sport fishing and spectacular scenery. Ecotourism is a great way to enjoy your time in the Broken Group Islands on the west coast of Vancouver Island while learning more about the area and wildlife. From the time you arrive in our marina, we’ll take care of you and your guests to make your vacation truly relaxing and refreshing while giving you the adventure of a lifetime.

Get Up Close and Personal with Ocean Wildlife

The Pacific Ocean near Ucluelet has many places for wildlife viewing. Probably the best season for whale watching is from April to September, but there are many other types of wildlife that you’ll find throughout the year. When you take one of our charters, we take you out in the inlet and into the Pacific Ocean to let you get close to sea lions, seals, salmon, porpoises, humpback whales, and orca.

We’ve spotted sea otters on our cruise, as well as eagles and bears. Sometimes, you may even catch a fox at the edge of the water. There are hundreds of animal species in the area along with as many varieties of plants and trees. Although you can enjoy fishing for salmon, you don’t have to use your eco adventure cruise for fishing. It can be simply a morning to enjoy nature.

Explore Barkley Sound

Our scenic cruises are manned by an experienced crew who knows the area. They know the best places throughout the waters. Humpback whales are often seen in July, even in the inlets and close to shore. From late August to mid-November, bear watching is at its peak near the Thornton Creek Hatchery as the mature Chinook and Coho return to their birthing grounds for spawning.  

The Broken Group Islands have many beautiful rock formations and beaches that make great photo opportunities, especially when you’re a few miles out to sea. Make hiking and kayaking part of your eco adventure to have multiple ways to explore the area and to catch breathtaking views from every direction.
