Water Taxi

As an alternative to our ships schedule for travel to the Broken Group Islands or Sechart Lodge, you may want to consider using our Sechart Water Taxi pictured above.

Based at Sechart, our 42 foot skiff is equipped to transport you, your kayaks and gear from Toquaht Bay or Bamfield into the Broken Group Islands or to our Lodge. It also offers water taxi service between Sechart and the Broken Group Islands, Haggard's Cove and other points in Barkley Sound.
