    Our fishing resort is located in an area of coastal wilderness that seems to have defied the passage of time. Kyuquot Sound (pronounced 'kai-you-cut'), consists of hundreds of islands, inlets, vast stretches of uninhabited coastline and a diverse population of wildlife. Surrounding the area are mist-covered peaks that make you think that you have travelled back to the beginning of time.

    Framed within this pristine natural splendor is Walters Cove Resort, an internationally renowned sport fishing destination, known for its incomparable hospitality, luxurious setting, and high intensity fishing. Walters Cove is a remote destination, only accessible by boat or seaplane. Every year, guests come from all corners of the globe to fish and take in this coastal paradise.

    At Walters Cove Resort, our guides are expert fishermen with a wealth of local knowledge and experience. Their insight into these waters comes from family traditions that have been passed down for millennia. This knowledge extends to bottom fishing for halibut, lingcod and rockfish, as well as trolling for salmon. Tuna fishing, a newly emerging sport fishery in Canada is only accessible to sports fishermen from a few places on the coast of British Columbia, one of which is Kyuquot Sound.

    Built in 2004, the Walters Cove Resort lodge is positioned on pilings and extends over the water. The back of the lodge is connected to land, providing easy access to Walters Island's beaches and forests. Our private dock provides views towards the idyllic village of Kyuquot.

    Recently renovated, our lodge has 10 deluxe guest rooms with ensuite bathrooms, a spacious dining room and a large outdoor patio that's perfect for unwinding and swapping fish stories. The lodge's vaulted ceilings and cedar accents give you the impression that you've travelled back to another era.

    One of the differences of Walters Cove Resort is our service. We offer an incredible 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio so, needless to say, we are fully prepared to cater to your every need.

    When you dine with us you can expect gourmet meals prepared by a talented chef using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

    Between dining inside looking over the harbour, enjoying one of our spectacular beach barbecues, or having your picnic lunch at sea while you're fishing, we are sure you will be impressed with our culinary offerings. We have a full bar and wine list available; as well as a selection of non-alcoholic beverages.

    Here at Walters Cove Resort we're happy to cater to any dietary requests, such as gluten free or vegetarian diets.

    Our administrative office is located in Campbell River.
