Hardy Island is a very popular destination because of its easy access from Vancouver. It is within a 5- to 10-minute boat ride from Saltery Bay Marina on the mainland. Within a 25-minute drive from Saltery Bay is the community of Powell River, which gives you access to all major services, including three major grocery stores, Walmart, two major building supply stores, hospital, restaurants and a municipal airport for regional transportation, in addition to a whole lot more.
Hardy Island is also unique because there are no mountains or major elevation rises, so most properties have excellent sunlight year-round for all residents. There is an internal road network which connects all the properties, and most neighbors visit by quad or side-by-side. The road provides a great place to stretch your legs and get some exercise. Children will love it as a place to explore, build forts and ride bikes.
Typically, there are no predatory animals on the Islands, which provides a safe environment for all to use and enjoy.
Hardy Island is named after Vice Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy. It is a sanctuary well sought after for its natural beauty, privacy, sheltered warm waters and abundance of marine wildlife. It is a recreational retreat that is easily accessed in a short period of time. Nelson Island is named after Viscount Horatio Nelson, the hero of the British Navy, and sits at the mouth of Jervis Inlet guarding the secrets of Prince of Wales Reach and Queens Reach.
Both islands are famous with the yachting crowd for the scenery and anchorages in Blind Bay and Telescope Pass. The area has a lot to offer and is one of the few spots on the coast where you can feel the presence of the towering Coast Mountains while experiencing the expanse of the Strait of Georgia. It is a region with a mild, dry and semi-Mediterranean climate.
With a population of approximately 20,000 people, this friendly seaside town offers 'big city' amenities and luxury services without the 'big city' parking and traffic hassles.

Hardy and Nelson Islands are a mecca for marine recreational activity, including boating, fishing, kayaking, scuba diving, site seeing and swimming in an area characterised as one of BC’s popular outdoor playgrounds. Hardy Island is centered between some of BC’s best boating territories, Jervis Inlet and Desolation Sound Marine Park. There are endless amounts of shoreline to explore, but one does not have to venture any further than your own dock to catch your daily limit in prawns, crabs, oysters and clams.
