Clayoquot Wilderness Resort is situated in a remote location on the west coast of Vancouver Island, accessed only by seaplane, helicopter or boat. The easiest and quickest way to travel to the resort is to fly to Vancouver, British Columbia (YVR) followed by a scenic 45-minute seaplane flight directly to the resort dock. Alternatively, you can fly to the town of Tofino (YAZ) on Vancouver Island and travel by boat (40 minutes) to the resort.

Alternatively, guests are able to personally book a private charter plane to Tofino or a private seaplane charter directly to the resort dock.
