The picturesque village of Bamfield is located in a protected inlet on the south shore of Barkley Sound.
It is surrounded by the traditional territories of the Huu-ay-aht First Nation, Crown Land and portions of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.
With little commercial development, and under the stewardship of the community-at-large, the area has remained protected and near-pristine.
The village is transected by Bamfield Inlet making boats the common mode of transportation. The "west side" is home to the Canadian Coast Guard Station and is distinguished by the historic boardwalk connecting homes, docks and businesses running along its side. Along with BMSC, the community school, Centennial Park, boat launch and a pub reside on the "east side".
Though small in size, the community offers a remarkable variety of lodgings, galleries, guided tours and fishing charters. Kayaking through the Broken Group, hiking the West Coast Trail, exploring the Nuu-chal-nuth First Nations history are only a few of things you can experience while you are here.
