 Additional Information

Try spots of Bajo Point and Calvin Bay to find waves.

My guess about the ideal surf season would be that it would match what is typical to Van Is. surfing and swells. This being spring and fall, because summer lacks energy, though has great weather and the winter has too much energy and can get scary being the first land that storms meet.

Atmosphere

Remote, remote location, tons of wildlife, big like Black Bears to small mice that will enjoy your food. Not a high probability that you will see another person. A long trip into a highly remmoved location, be prepared. Not only much experienced surfer but experienced hiker required. Take a look at weather forcast and don't bother in the winter.

Don't shit where you eat - Please don't use the pools above calvin falls as a bathroom. It is the only decent source of fresh water on the beach. Take walk down the beach and shit below the tideline. It seems like common sense but it happens every summer, people bathing and going to the bathroom above the falls. That said, I love this place: beach break, river mouth break and if you got the cajones the reef at the north end spits wicked barrels over flat limestone shelves at med to low tide.

- get a grip....a bunch of surfers are going to have a minimal impact on wildlife.the vegation grows like stink,bears and wolves could care less about human activity.nobody owns the bush...and last i checked it's still a free country.You want to talk ecological impact ? talk about the logging.civilization slicker

North Island breaks - I'm going to be doing a surf trip around the island in my boat, it's a 48 foot sloop. I can cruise at a max of 7 knots on motor power, faster under sail depending on the wind. My question is, are there any safe anchorages around the surf spots on Nootka/Brooks Pen./Hesquiat? If anybody has any information about navigational hazards or GPS coordinates for me, I'd totally appreciate it, otherwise I'm going in blind. Mahalo.
