Visiting the Property in 2016
We offer limited day trips to Cougar Annie's Garden and a selected few overnight opportunities.
Cougar Annie's Garden: 1915 - 2015
Cougar Annie arrived at Boat Basin, Hesquiat Harbour, in 1915. The 5-acre garden she created was restored...
Boat Basin Foundation
The Boat Basin Foundation is a non-profit foundation and a registered Canadian charity operated by a small volunteer board of directors. The objectives of the Foundation are to maintain Cougar Annie's garden for future generations and to encourage appreciation and education in temperate rainforest ecology.
Our location at Boat Basin offers a unique setting for temperate rainforest studies at the newly constructed Temperate Rainforest Field Study Centre. Located at the northern reaches of Clayoquot Sound on Vancouver Island's West Coast, we are 55 kilometres (33 miles) north of Tofino.
The Temperate Rainforest Field Study Centre is many miles from a connected road system, and can be reached only by air or very occasionally by water. Far from the distractions of modern living, the Centre offers unequalled access to this part of the coast.
