Getting Here Most people come by boat from Zeballos, Tahsis and Gold River. Water taxis can also be hired. Shorebird Water Taxi Another option is to take a historic freight boat; the MVUchuck. It is a scenic 5-6 hr. trip up between Vancouver Island and Nootka Island and they drop you off right in front of Flynn's Cove. The MV Uchuck leaves Gold River on Thursdays and returns on Fridays. MVUchuck Nootka Air runs a "scheduled flight" on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and lands right at our dock. Nootka Air A combo of the above would be an adventure! Drive paved roads to Gold River, drag your heavy cooler on board the Uchuck on Thursday am...hang out here for Thurs - Mon and have a float plane ride back! Something to think about anyway!
