Port Hardy Fishing Charters, Bear Tours, Whale Watching!
Vancouver, Island, BC, Canada
Staying at the Orange Tabby Bed & Breakfast while
visiting Port Hardy on Northern Vancouver Island, you can experience
many of the adventures this area has to offer. Whale watching,
bear watching, sport fishing, kayaking, deep sea diving, hiking, beachcombing
and enjoying all aspects of a Temperate Rain Forest region are some
options in this area. Port Hardy is definitely more than just a stop
over while travelling to or from the North Coast via BC Ferries.
Port Hardy Whale watching on the
North coast is fantastic from late June to the end of September. The
Cape Scott Water Taxi provides a whale and nature tour that departs
from the Quarterdeck Marina. Mackay’s Whale Watching and Stubbs
Island Whale Watching Tours are only a short drive from Port Hardy.
Both companies provide the experience of a lifetime viewing Orca
and Humpback whales in their natural environment. Sea
lions, Dolphins and Porpoises as well as many different species of birds
will complete this memorable day before your return to the comfort and
hospitality of the Orange Tabby Bed & Breakfast.
Port Hardy and the surrounding North Island have
North America’s densest population of Black Bears.
Spotting Black Bears in many various locations is easy from early spring
until late fall. Bear Watching Tours are available with our local naturalist
Larry Woodall who has 35 years experience. Larry will ensure you have
an exciting day and the Orange Tabby Bed & Breakfast will ensure
a restful night.
Port Hardy Sport Fishing Charters include
fishing for Halibut, Salmon and many species of Cod. Leisure Suit Charters
offers a fully guided experience with packages available to fish anywhere
off of the North Island. After a successful day on the Pacific Ocean,
assistance with processing your catch is available at Hardy Buoys Smoked
Fish. If you bring your own boat, we have ample parking right here at
the Orange Tabby Bed & Breakfast.
Kayaking Tours: The waters surrounding
the North Island provide a venue for kayakers from beginner to expert.
Complete kayak tour packages both guided and independent are available
through Odyssey Kayaking. You will have everything you need to be safe
and well equipped for your day on the water. We will assist you with
dinner reservations upon your return.
Deep Sea Diving in the area is unsurpassed
by anywhere else on Earth. Your hosts at the Orange Tabby B&B will
be happy to suggest one of several diving operations who can supply
you with all necessary gear.
Our Temperate Rain Forest region offers
Hiking for all levels of ability. Among those trails are the
challenging World Famous Cape
Scott Park Trail and the newly opened North
Coast Trail, as well as the shorter day trip to San
Josef Bay. There is no shortage of Beaches to explore. Whether
