Friendly Cove/Yuquot, Uchuck Tour


Travel from Parksville through scenic Strathcona Park to Gold River. Board the Uchuck III for a comfortable cruise down the amazing Muchalat Inlet and Nootka Sound to Friendly Cove/Yuquot where Captain Cook first set foot on Vancouver Island.

Great views from the lighthouse and interesting First Nations carvings in the beach carving shed.


Explore the unique and beautiful church, beaches, and rainforest.

Lunch is available on the Uchuck or bring your own. We have dinner at a pub in Gold River that has excellent food.
