LOCATION & DIRECTIONS
THE WORK CHANNEL ROAD
The Work Channel Road entrance can be found off Highway 16, East of Prince Rupert. Travelling westbound: after passing the Basalt Creek Rest Area & Khyex River, the Work Channel Road entrance will be on your right. Travel time on the dirt road is approximately 1 hour. This road is not maintained, use at your own risk. For easiest launch, it is recommended to go at low tide. This route stays in the protective inlet allowing more shelter from harsh weather patterns. We are located at the top right of the inlet on Hogan Island, near the mouth of the Work Channel. The exact location is pinned on Navionics maps.
LAX KW'ALAAMS-PORT SIMPSON
This route requires ferry transportation from Prince Rupert to Lax Kw'alaams. Upon arrival it is a 15 minute drive from the terminal to the boat launch. From the launch to Victory Cove is a 15 minute boat ride. Ferry reservations are highly recommended and more information can be found here
The main boat launch in Prince Rupert is Rushbrook Harbour. The route from Prince Rupert to Victory Cove is an hour and a half by boat. Since this route goes through open water it is subject to more extreme weather patterns. This route is more advanced and not recommended to those without prior experience.
We put safety first at Victory Cove and recommend all guests are familiar with marine weather conditions before getting out on the water. The official Canadian government marine
weather forecast can be found here
