Port Hardy adventures for kids of all ages!

Good news! We are sailing through BC’s restart plan to bring us back together, just in time for summer! Whether you are a local or a fellow islander here for a visit, Port Hardy has many great activities to do with the family.


Here are some suggestions from Visit Port Hardy team member Samantha!

Grab a fishing pole and head to the Rotary family fishing park located off the Seagate Pier. There is a viewing hole to cast off in or watch the fish swim by. Maybe you’ll get lucky and catch some dinner! Or just sit, relax and enjoy the view.


Take a leisurely walk along the Quatse River loop and estuary trail. Painted rocks hidden by artsy locals can be found throughout and are fun for the kids to spy along your walk. Sights of nesting bald eagles, kingfishers and great blue herons are not uncommon.




Don’t feel like cooking? Head down to Macy’s Place, located across from the Visitor Centre. Grab a burger to go or dine out on their picnic patio. Their fish tacos are delicious! When your done you can walk along the seawall, enjoy views across the Queen Charlotte Strait and read stories telling you some of the history of the area.
