Active gold-rush territory circa the Second World War, this deep-sea port on the inland Pacific coastline is now known for its hiking, rock climbing, caving and diving. It’s an engaging stop before or after charter fishing and kayaking expeditions to Kyuquot Sound, the Brooks Peninsula and Nootka Sound.
