Hornby Island BC

Thanks for coming with us to Hornby Island.

To get to Hornby Island from Vancouver Island you take two ferries.

First you ferry over to Denman Island, drive across Denman Island and take another ferry to Hornby.

We actually missed our ferry connection, which meant ice cream!

Our first day on Hornby, we moved campsites and did the Helliwell loop to see the cliffs. Helliwell Provincial Park is a beautiful park on Hornby Island where you can enjoy the Helliwell Bluffs and walk the Helliwell Park Trail.

Our second stop was Tribune Bay.

This is a beautiful beach sandy beach for swimming because the water gets so warm. Sailboats also often anchor here for the evenings out of the wind.

The next day we visited Ford’s Cove.

The rock structures are Ford’s Cove are some of the most fascinating geology I have ever seen.

We went back to Tribune Bay and swam in the ocean in the afternoon and then we had pizza at the bakery in the evening.

Our final day we did an unmarked trail across from the bakery. It was a place to hike that was near our campground, Brad’s Dad’s Land, on Hornby.

It had some fabulous lookout points. We were probably the only people on Hornby who were not mountain biking.

No paddle boarding for us on Hornby this time because it was too windy.

We are looking for a place to paddle board on Vancouver Island on a lake.

Our final day we hiked at Helliwell again.

We didn’t finish our hike in time, mostly because we spend so much time gathering film footage, drone footage and photography.

So instead of going to the co-op, which closes at 6:00 pm we went to the bakery for pizza and a live band.

Thanks for watching, thanks for your thumbs up, comments and for subscribing to the channel.

Namaste, Melissa
