Port Hardy

Bird Watching

Bald Eagles in a tree

Look up just about anywhere/anytime in Port Hardy between April and September, and it's likely a bald eagle or three will be soaring in the blue skies.

Other bird watching sightings can include great blue herons, American widgeons, buffleheads, trumpeter swans, and numerous types of seabirds. The Scott Islands off the western tip of Cape Scott Provincial Park are home to tens of thousands of tufted puffins.

The best bird watching spot in Port Hardy itself is from the viewing platform overlooking the marshy wetlands of the Quatse River Estuary. Bring binoculars and a camera when visiting the site, which can be reached via Goodspeed Road just past Port Hardy RV Resort. A walking trail here links up with the harbourfront walkway to Fisherman's Wharf and the forested Quatse River Trail loop.

Port Hardy is also home to excellent whale watching and bear watching.
