The sound is named after the Kyuquot people, who are of the Nuu-chah-nulth-aht peoples by culture and language (incorrectly known as "Nootka"). Their local government, based at Kyuquot, British Columbia, is the Kyuquot/Cheklesahht First Nation which is a member of the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council.
Kyuquot Sound has main arms that branch out into the interior of Vancouver Island. Numerous islands can be found within the sound, the largest of which are Union Island, Hohoae Island, Moketas Island, Whiteley Island, and Surprise Island. Rugged Point Marine Provincial Park lies to the southern end of the sound while Tahsish-Kwois Provincial Park protects one of the northern arms.
