Float plane arrives at Boat Basin


Boat Basin is situated at the head of Hesquiat Harbour at the northern reaches of Clayoquot Sound, West Coast of Vancouver Island. Access is via floatplane from Tofino, fifty-one kilometres to the southeast.

The wilderness setting of Cougar Annie's Garden is much the same as it was when Cougar Annie landed at Boat Basin in 1915. First-growth temperate rainforest, a coastal lake, and Pacific beaches surround the property.
