Other Comments:

As a result of the Covid pandemic, in June 2021 the Maaqutusiis Hahoulthee Stewardship Society requested closure and limited use of traditional territorial waters and lands sites in the Vargas Island area in Clayoquot Sound. The marine area is patrolled by yellow boat “Ahous Guardian” and some campers have been asked to leave. The stewardship society has listed Whaler Islet as Day Use only with no camping allowed. The society has requested that all kayakers stay within the boundaries outlined on the route map until further notice and payment of a voluntary $15/day user fee. See Vargas map .
Unique island. Sand dunes. Multiple fire rings are evidence of past destructive camping behaviour, Leave No Trace!
