We rested at Taku for two nights in the way to our sea kayaking vacation with Spirit of the West. Our daughters walked into the cabin, saw the chairs tucked along the shore, one announced that she would like to have her honeymoon here, and the other asked if she could be left at Taku for the week instead of...

We love Heriot Bay and have stayed several times at the Heriot Bay marina. When we moored there in 2013, there were so many logs in the marina at high tide in the middle of the night, that I was awakened by them knocking against our boat. So this year, we decided to dock at Taku and we're very glad... More

After several visits through the years and more to come, Taku is awesome. Lynden and the Taku Team once again are to be commended for ensuring a superb experience in a spectacular location that never fails to whelm the senses. As seasoned boaters and kayakers Taku offers the perfect departure point for fabulous travels in the Discovery Islands and Inlets.... More

I have visited Taku Resort twice now (previously in August 2013) and both times it has been amazing. The resort is situated in a quiet corner of Heriot Bay with spectacular ocean views. We were also treated to a variety of wildlife sightings including bald eagles, deer, starfish, seals, and even a family of orca whales! Taku has a wide... More

Hello Christa Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You really timed your stay right if you were able to see a family of orcas! It's a somewhat rare magical experience. Paddle boarding looks more tricky than it really is, doesn't it? It's the perfect way to explore Quadra by water. We're so pleased that you've enjoyed... More

Once again I have had a wonderful, unforgettable stay at Tacu. I have stayed in the cabins several times before but this time around I opted for the upper beach house. My lady and I were beyond spoiled. A spacious two bedroom, two bathroom apartment that was beyond comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for entertaining while cooking. The wrap around... More

This family-style resort is located right on the water in Heriot Bay. There is a section for RV's, several cabins and a row of rooms, all with lovely views. We booked the day of our stay and the manager was very accommodating. Our room had an ensuite bathroom, a Murphy bed, a fully kitted out kitchenette, a tiny dining table/chairs... More

Once again, the best place for a base camp to boat or kayak into Discovery and Desolation water ways, this while you relax and enjoy the scenery knowing your boat is secure in an excellent marina with essential amenities only a short walk "up-the-hill".

We are so happy to find places such as this little gem that doesn't use fragrances or chemicals but yet maintain very clean cottage style units. The view and setting is breathtaking plus they allow pets! We just love to visit Quadra Island and to stay at the Taku resort.
