Nootka Sound Professional Review and Guide
"Exploring the Spanish Pilot Group is a great 2–4-day tour that will give you a good taste of Nootka Sound and most likely whet your appetite for further adventures. For the more experienced, taking a few more days to explore Yuquot/Friendly Cove and Burdwood Bay is time well spent. For all its natural beauty, it is the history of Nootka Sound that makes this area unique. Nootka Sound is where Capt. James Cook first set foot in British Columbia and where the sea otter fur trade began. Most importantly, Nootka is the ancestral home of the Mowachaht/Muchalaht people. As the Mowachaht/Muchalaht have said, it is not just a place: Nootka is a feeling, and if you listen closely as you paddle the shores and walk the beaches, you might just hear the elders talking."
