Twenty km (12.5 mi.) northwest of Port Hardy lies a group of small islands, including Hurst, Bell, Boyle and Crane, that make up God’s Pocket Provincial Marine Park. This 2025-ha (5,004-a.) park also contains a number of islets and, combined with exceptional campsites on nearby islands just outside the park, your paddling options are unlimited. Tucked between the northeast coast of Vancouver Island and the mainland is a little-known paddling area with a colourful history. Shaped by hurricane-force winter storms, the archipelago of islands that sprawls across Queen Charlotte Strait offers wild, rugged shorelines for kayakers to enjoy.
