BCC #08 Cove Cottages – Port Hardy  
Overview: The cottages are a family operated cottage retreat nestled amongst mature trees perched high on the hilltop across from Bear Cove only 10 minutes south of Port Hardy, Vancouver Island, British Columbia. A retreat specifically designed and dedicated to captivating the true essence of the surrounding wilderness. Each cottage offering exceptional comfort and relaxation, wilderness adventures and breath-taking ocean views ... naturally. All our 8 fully equipped hilltop cottages in Port Hardy enjoy views over the serene waters of the Pacific Ocean. The therapeutic background sounds of nature will capture your attention when viewing the surrounding marine activity below while admiring the Bald Eagles in flight high above.

Area Information: The Quatse River Hatchery is one of four operated by the North Vancouver Island Salmonid Enhancement Agency, which works with local resources in the recovery of the salmonid stocks in North Island streams. The hatchery offers tours of its salmon incubation facilities, troughs and tanks with young fish, and is open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 4:00 pm. The best fish viewing occurs in October when salmon enter the river to spawn. The peak spawning period for Pink Salmon is early to mid October and mid to late October for Coho Salmon. Hardy Bay and the Quatse River Estuary are visited by a wide range of wildlife. Bald Eagles and Great Blue Heron are common throughout the year. Scan the exposed mud flats during low tides for many species of shorebirds. During fall and winter waterfowl are found, including Canada Geese, American Wigeon, Green-winged Teal, Bufflehead and mergansers. Cormorants and many seabird species are also seen. During the fall, salmon travel through the bay and enter the Quatse River, attracting wildlife that feeds on the dead and dying fish. Good kayaking is found in the protected waters of the east coast of the island. There are several staging areas, including Beaver Harbour south of Port Hardy, allowing you to kayak or canoe to spectacular locations - canoe and kayaks can be rented by the day or week. Many parts of the Discovery Coast to the north of Port Hardy are relatively unknown to kayakers. This region will appeal to resourceful paddlers who seek a sense of pioneering, which includes laying some groundwork, discovering new fishing spots, wildlife watching, dealing with unknown tidal currents, and finding new campsites. Guided and self-guided day tours and two to seven day trips are available, with or without mother ships. Explore the stunning beauty and enjoy the scenic grandeur on one of the world's most awe-inspiring voyages - take the 15-hour BC Ferries trip from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert through the Inside Passage. Reserve accommodation in Port Hardy ahead in summer; motels are usually packed the night before the Prince Rupert boat leaves and the night after it arrives.
