Fair Harbour is a remote outpost on the Northwest side of Vancouver Island. In May, 2013 I hitched a ride from here with Leo Jack and Voyager Water Taxi voyagerwatertaxi.com to the small village of Kyuquot and from there I paddled to Spring Island.
This time though, documentary film maker Paul Novy from icebergfilms.com and I will be arriving in Fair Harbour on the afternoon of September 1st. We will be launching our kayaks early on the morning of the 2nd and paddling all the way to Rugged Point env.gov.bc.ca/…/explore/parkpgs/rugged_pt
Originally our plan was to stay in the small village of Zeballos not too far away but due to lack of lodging I figured our next best option would be to simply camp in Fair Harbour the night before our launch.
If the website is any indication, the Ka:’yu:’k’t’h’ / Chek’tles7et’h’ people have completely revitalized this outpost and have made it a fantastic gateway to Kyuquot Sound. I am very impressed to say the least and I’m looking forward to our stay at the campground: gatewaytokyuquot.com/fairharbour
