Port Hardy - "Where the highway ends and the adventure begins"

Located on the north-eastern coast of Vancouver Island, Port Hardy has a population around 4000 people. It is the gateway to Cape Scott Provincial Park on the northernmost tip of Vancouver Island and home to the BC Ferries Northern Route terminal. The town's motto, found on a sign entering town, that reads, "where the highway ends and the adventure begins."

Once a year, Port Hardy holds a celebration in Rotary Park to acknowledge its natural resource based economy. The three syllables, fi, lo and mi, stand for "Fishing, Logging and Mining". The celebration includes festivities in the park such as activities for children, fundraising concessions, entertainment, beer gardens, a dunk-tank, balloons, bake sales, craft sales, and fireworks.

Deer, black bears, bald eagles, squirrels, and many other species of birds and mammals are often spotted along the Quatse Loop Nature Trail or at Storey's Beach which is a short drive from town. Humpback whales can occasionally been seen surfacing in the bay in front of Rotary Park. Port Hardy has many wildlife charters, fishing charters and places to camp during tourist season.

Port Hardy is a terrific place to visit, vacation, and live. Just ask Representatives from Coast Realty Group (Port Hardy), leaders in real estate who, like all of us, put People. Above all.
