PORT HARDY WITH TIDES AND TALES

Variety and prime fishing make Port Hardy an unbeatable destination ‘Every day is different’

There’s few places on the West Coast that can put an angler onto fighting salmon just seven minutes from the dock.

That’s the allure of Port Hardy, a small community tucked into a deep inlet on the north coast of Vancouver Island. This is the last stop on Highway 19 and the wildness is apparent. Diving eagles and breaching whales blend with old-growth forests and steep rocky shores to paint an unbelievable picture of nature at its best.

For Mike Kelly, the owner of Tides and Tales, the allure of the place is also about its variety. “You leave the dock early in the morning and head out into Queen Charlotte Straight, and that’s where the predictions end. Every day is totally different,” he says. “It’s the variety that keeps me coming back.”

From salmon to halibut, the opportunities to connect with wild fish abound. “This really is a fish highway,” he says. “It’s one of the best salmon fishing spots on the West Coast.”
