If you are doing a Vancouver boat charter, then probably on your itinerary is a cruise up to Desolation Sound. Well worth a stop en-route would be Hardy Island, which is a beautiful secluded island, lying next to Nelson Island with Blind Bay in between.
Whilst the Island is mainly forested, the surrounding geography consists of lakes and mountains and it really does provide stunning coastal scenery.
It is a popular spot for boat charters due to its beautiful clean, green and warm waters for swimming, diving and fishing. If fishing is your thing then just off the shore of the island at the mouth of Telescope passage there are great opportunities for salmon and cod fishing.
If you do go ashore there is a park bench on Hardy Island Marine which provides an excellent spot for watching the abundant wildlife and passing the time of day surrounded by spectacular scenery!
Hardy Island does provide safe anchorage, however in the winter the wind swings in from the South East so extra caution is needed.
Taking a Vancouver boat charter and cruising to the southern tip of Hardy Island gives you the ideal opportunity to enjoy the spectacular views across Blind Nay to Nelson Island, with Texada Island to the West.
