Hot Springs Cove/Hesquiaht

Hesquiaht First Nation is the most northerly and isolated of the five Central Region Nuu-chah-nulth Nations. There are two communities, one at Hesquiat Harbour and the other at Hot Springs Cove, named after the natural hot springs located at the south end of a narrow peninsula on the east side of the cove. Over one hour by boat from Tofino, the Hesquiaht are used to living in isolation, however more adventurous visitors to the territory will enjoy the hot springs, Hesquiat Harbour, Hooksum Outdoor School, and Cougar Annie’s Garden.
