Located adjacent to Flores Island Provincial Park on Flores Island, Gibson Provincial Marine Park offers sheltered anchorage in Matilda Inlet. The park is home to a natural warm spring, contained in an open concrete tank, located on the shores of Matilda Inlet. A non-maintained historic route connects the warm springs, which are considered to be of therapeutic value, to the broad sandy beaches at Whitesand Cove. This route once provided access to a life-saving telegraph line and an old homestead.

Gibson Marine, immediately south of the Nuu-chah-nulth community of Ahousat, also provides access to the “Walk the Wild Side” route, a route that extends 10 km from Ahousat to Cow Bay. Most of the route follows sandy beaches and trails cut across headlands to join with the next beach. At this time, muddy and slippery sections are present on this route.

Visitors from around the world come to explore Clayoquot Sound, and Flores Island is one of the most popular destinations for kayakers, who can find ample opportunities for camping and wildlife viewing from the Island’s beautiful sandy shores.
