About Shorebird Expeditions

We are a Vancouver Island boat charter service catering to hiking and kayaking in the Nootka Sound area. We specialize in remote beach access and kayak transportation. MV “Shorebird” is a 22’ customized aluminum landing craft with a capacity of up to ten passengers and six kayaks.

Based in Tahsis BC, we offer efficient and affordable service to all of Nootka Sound, Esperanza and Nuchatlitz Inlets including access to the Nootka Trail and coastal hiking on the Tatchu and Hesquiat Peninsulas. This is an area of wild and remote shorelines where the echoes of countless generations of First Nation inhabitants will add a unique and profound dimension to your experience. This extraordinary setting is within the ancestral territory of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations. We urge all visitors to be respectful of this heritage.
