We're heading over to Moutcha Bay about mid August, mostly to satisfy my flyfishing addiction (Kings,Coho and maybe Steelhead). I was looking into one of those overnite trips the MV Uchuck III offers from Gold River as a good way to tour Nootka Sound,(not for fishing) but my wife thinks too long a boat ride and not enuf time at any location,( Meaning hikes or wildlife viewing, etc.)
If anyone has been on one of the overnites (Kyuquot or Esperanza)w/ MV Uchuck and can give an idea of the trip and sights and what its like at these towns would be most helpful.
My other option could be to drive over to Tahsis and hire out a
captain for a day trip touring Nootka. I'm assuming Moutcha bay would not have that option.
This will be our 1st time to Vancouver Isl. and most info has been found on web sites. So any feed back or info on any of this would be appreciated, including dragging flies in Moutcha bay.
We figure Tofino to be a pretty busy place at this time and thought this to be a little more off the beaten path.
