CR Art Gallery

The Campbell River Art Gallery acknowledges that it is located on the unceded traditional territory of the Ligwiłda’xw people; the We Wai Kai, Wei Wai Kum, and Kwiakah First Nations, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day. We opened in 1994 and remain Campbell River’s sole public gallery, serving the surrounding regional districts and islands. We exhibit contemporary art by professional artists in our Main Gallery and Satellite Gallery.

Our annual exhibition program is at the core of all the activity at the Gallery, directing workshop themes, lectures, school tours and community outreach.

We acknowledge and are grateful for the financial support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Province of British Columbia, the British Columbia Arts Council, the City of Campbell River, as well as to the many members and donors whose contributions make our work possible.

Air Nootka Tours


We will fly you over the length of the Nootka Island Trail, so you can see the marvels that ​await you on your hike. You’ll be dropped off at Louie Lagoon which is the start of the trail. The trapped waters of Louie Lagoon yield an excellent protected landing area, only accessible by floatplane. A 45 minute hike along a flagged path through the rainforest brings hikers to the rolling surf of the Pacific Ocean at Third Beach.


Come join Air Nootka and Get West Adventure Cruises for a day at Friendly Cove! Beginning June and running through summer.

Flights leave the base at Air Nootka between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. 

Air Nootka will fly you out to Friendly Cove, where the infamous Captain Cook landed, allowing you to explore and enjoy the area. You will then board the MV Uchuck III mid afternoon for the return cruise to Gold River. 


Ready for some world class fishing in the Nootka Sound? Air Nootka provides transportation to the Nootka Island Lodge during the summer fishing season.

Flights run Monday, Thursday, and Saturday at 12:30 & 1:30 PM.


Hot Springs Cove is a truly special place. After a short & scenic flight Air Nootka will drop you off at the Maquinna Marine Park Wharf. This is the start of the magical 30-45 minute walk along a well maintained boardwalk through the old growth forest to the hot springs themselves. Once there you can spend the day soaking in the natural rock pools which vary from very hot at the top where the water comes out in a small waterfall to comfortably warm nearer to the ocean. There are shelters, a changing area, and outdoor toilets for your convenience.

Water sandals are highly recommended as the rocks in and around the pools are quite slippery.
