Port Hardy

Island Health
North Island, Vancouver Island, BC

Port Hardy is the gateway to Cape Scott Provincial Park, the North Coast Trail, and the BC Marine Trail, located on the Northernmost tip of Vancouver Island. The community has access to various outdoor activities, such as kayaking, caving, scuba diving, nature viewing, surfing, saltwater rapids, fishing, and camping. 

Located within the traditional territory of the Kwakiutl First Nation and home to two neighboring First Nations bands, the Quatsino and Gwa'sala-'Nakwaxda'xw, at the Northern tip of Vancouver Island, Port Hardy and the surrounding area is rich in tradition and deeply rooted in culture. Totems and big houses stand tall and weathered throughout Port Hardy and the neighboring community of Fort Rupert, telling of the Indigenous history that began over 8,000 years ago.
