A little gem hidden in Nootka Sound. This floating fishing lodge is well equipped and cozy, easy to get to from Gold River, less than an hour by small boat. The basic cabin for two seemed a bit pricey at first but upon arrival I quickly realized it was worth the money. The cabins are clean there is a restaurant... More

Catherine and Bryce the crew of the good ship Mako were amazing hosts who knew where the fish were and had the Nootka Knowledge to invite them to our boat.

You must come expecting somewhat of a rustic experience as this floating lodge is located in a fairly remote area of BC's west coast and is almost entirely floating on water. That said, you will be met with simple clean rooms, warm showers,... More

I have been coming to Critter Cove for the past 18 years, and over that time have brought in in excess of 50 friends and relatives, and friends of friends for an experience of a lifetime. Some of these visitors have come from 7 or 8 states and just about all of our provinces. Critter Cove is a must go... More
