Boating & Sailing
Imagine standing at the helm of your sailboat, with the sails fully raised. The salty mists of the ocean invigorate you for the adventure that awaits. Let the cool coastal winds catch the boat and caress it through the tranquil, sapphire water. Turn off the engine and anchor off the shore of Port Hardy, catching a glimpse of an orca or humpback whale in the distance. Lounge on the deck of your vessel and watch spotted seals sprawled on a nearby rock. Or drop anchor and go kayaking through the tepid inlets and fjords that dot the mainland coastline.
Known for its beautiful, rugged shores and close proximity to the famed Inside Passage, Port Hardy is the perfect place to embark on your boating or sailing adventure.
Off the eastern shore of Port Hardy, the Queen Charlotte Strait is known for its sheltered tranquility and serene beauty; the perfect spot for anchorage.
As you travel from Port Hardy and round the northern tip of Vancouver Island you enter Cape Scott Provincial Park. These tumultuous waters are for the experienced boater only. As you surround yourself with cobalt skies and indigo ocean around British Columbia’s Vancouver Island, it’s hard to tell where the sky ends and the sea begins.
The coastal waters off Port Hardy provide great sailing and boating vacations for the adventurous at heart.
