Nuchatlitz Provincial Park
Nuchatlitz Provincial Park (not to be confused with Nuchatlitz Inlet) is a delightful anchorage. It’s huge, well-sheltered, and just 20-30 feet deep with excellent holding. The shoreline is vast, varied, and interesting, with a selection of cabins, a collapsing church, lots of intertidal, and many small islets. This is an excellent place to explore by kayak and dinghy.
Wildlife abounds. We’ve seen bears and wolves ashore and orca and humpback whales just outside the entrance.
Much of the land ashore is private.

Explore by dinghy or kayak. If the weather is settled, find the sandy beaches on Rosa Island or take the dinghy across to Catala Spit/Rolling Roadstead.
The entrance channel is well-marked and well-charted, but narrow and shallow. Currents run to several knots.
