The Uchuck provides regular transportation of goods between a number of the small, water-based communities in the Nootka Sound region. The trips generally begin in Gold River. Year round the Uchuck visits the Nootka communities every Tuesday, and makes the trip to Kyuquot every week as well. In the summer there are also tourist cruises offered in the region.
Not only locals use the service. This is a very popular route with hikers looking to get to the Nootka Trail, and with kayakers who want to access the region. Watching a wet launch is quite common on the Uchuck, where kayakers are dropped into the water in their kayaks ready to go.
It's a Coastal Lifestyle .... Pass It On!
