Water Taxi in and around Kyuquot Sound.
Are you heading camping this summer? Going kayaking in Kyuquot Sound? Want to save your arms and arrange a pick up in Fair Harbour and a drop off somewhere else, let us know! Our MV ‘Outrageous’ is available for water taxi charters.

Fair Harbour – Brooks Peninsula
Safe and Reliable!
The MV Outrageous was designed and built by Kristy’s grandfather and was used for herring fishing for years. Then Esko offered kayak transport and water taxi services with the boat before retiring and selling the boat to Kristy. We have since re-powered the boat and added a new console and bench seats. Our local drivers know the area and can get you from point A to point B safely. The boat is 30 ft long by 10 ft wide and powered with a 250 hp Yamaha 4-stroke.
Kyuquot Sound has many places you can go and set up your camp. On the beach. No campground fee’s and not many people. Please do your homework first and don’t go on any of the First Nations islands without proper proof of access. The inside of Rugged Point is a wonderful protected place to camp with a lovely walking path to the outer beaches for exploring. Spring Island is not far from Kyuquot and a favorite for Kayakers. The Bunsby Islands is also a very popular place for kayaking, a small bundle of islands up west where the sea otters were re-introduced. There is lots to see and do in the Bunsby Islands. And for the adventurists, Brooks Peninsula is the farthest away point, Jacobson point has a protected pick up and drop off location (with a hike across the point to get to the outer sandy beaches) Spend your days hiking and beach combing and enjoy nature on Brooks Peninsula!
Safe and Modern Dock
Next to our lodge is our dock with a nice aluminum ramp and 5 ft. wide walkway down to where all of our boats and fish care are located. Grab a seat at the end of the night and watch the sunset from our dock!
We are located on a small island with some nice walking paths, one leads to outside beach which is a must do to check out the giant trees and rugged west coast beach or head out after dinner for a bon fire.
Walter’s Island also has a small convenience store and post office, a few houses mostly owned as summer getaway cabins and a restaurant – coffee shop with the best Latte’s in town!
By Boat or Plane
Access to the lodge is either by boat or plane. Most of our guests drive to Fair Harbour, a small parking lot/fuel station 14 miles up the inlet where we pick you up by boat at 1:30pm on your arrival day. Other options of getting here include a shuttle from the Comox Airport or a float plane charter from Campbell River or Vancouver.
