This area is popular with boaters for swimming, viewing, diving, fishing and wilderness camping. Hardy Island Marine provides a safe anchorage and is only an island at high tide.
A park bench located on Hardy Island Marine provides an excellent spot to sit and take in the beautiful scenery of the area. The warm, clean and green waters surrounding the area are reminiscent of a more tropical place. This park is subject to southeast winds during the winter. Use caution when anchoring.
As the anchorage is known as the Hardy Island Anchorage, the Council of British Columbia Yacht Clubs requested that the name of the park be changed. On October 21, 2004, the Legislative Assembly passed Bill 74 to officially change the name.
