Cape Scott is a place of extremes: rugged, inpenetrable wilderness on the northwest tip of Vancouver Island. The treacherous currents and unrelenting weather at Cape Scott is notorious among sailors and hundreds of shipwrecks dot the coast. The isolated Cape Scott lighthouse is one of the last in British Columbia still tended by a keeper. This climate and landscape can be unforgiving, and two separate attempts at settlement here ended in failure. The forest reclaims quickly; so the few poignant reminders of the park's human inhabitants are disappearing. Black bears forage along the beaches and enjoy the shelter of the dense forest. Seals and sea lions inhabit the offshore rocks and islands.
