Port Hardy: Town and Country

  

Overview

Sometimes a few hours of fishing are all you need. Port Hardy, a small town in the northern part of Vancouver Island, is a perfect base to make your base for a casual fishing trip. Hop in a boat and there’s great fishing just five minutes from the dock. Or, power out a little further and explore the wild and remote coast of the northern end of Vancouver Island or the southern reaches of the Central Coast. Then, it’s back to town for lunch or dinner and relaxing at your hotel.
