Narrows Inlet is the preferred destination of many paddlers, most of whom must travel with tents and camping gear for a day or two just to get here. You are already here and able to devote all your time to leisurely explore the many places of interest.
Visit “seal reef” and drift with the inhabitants. View Aboriginal pictographs under the watchful eye of our resident mountain goats and eagles. Paddle amongst the many varieties of sea birds, sea and river otters, sea lions and frequently dolphins and Orca whales. Visit Tzoonie Marine Park and continue on to the head of Narrows Inlet and the gorgeous Tzoonie River.
Hiking, Biking and Beachcombing
Whether on foot or bike, explore Tzoonie's groomed trails and many kilometres of abandoned logging roads which offer spectacular views and unlimited opportunities to view and film wildlife, plant life, and enjoy the many varieties of berries and mushrooms.
A very unique feature of the resort is the abundance of shellfish and marine species along many kilometres of beach. Guests can gather oysters, clams, mussels and sea asparagus to feast on later in the day. Tzoonie provides the tools and expertise.
Most inlets on the West Coast have the resources to provide fishing for ling cod, rockfish, red snapper, etc, however Narrows Inlet also has an abundance of sea-run cutthroat trout making their way to the Tzoonie River to spawn.
These fish can be taken by fly, spin casting or trolling. Many of our paddlers troll from kayaks or canoes. You can also fish for perch from our docks to bait the crab traps. Arrangements can also be made to transport guests the 16 kilometers to the head of the Inlet and the Tzoonie River where you can hike or bike along the banks to favorite fishing holes.
