Hornby Island provides perfect opportunities for hiking, biking, kayaking, sailing, swimming, snorkelling, paddle boarding, recreational boating and diving. Follow a rainforest trail on foot or bicycle through Mount Geoffrey Regional Park. Dive, paddle or sail in the ocean from the Ford Cove Marina. During the hot summer days, swim in the crystal clear waters of Tribune Bay Provincial Park or another of the numerous beaches. For a delightful sightseeing walk, follow the trail loop through old growth forest and along the stunning bluffs of Helliwell Provincial Park. The island also offers special activities throughout the year, including full moon walks, biking events, dance workshops, and both outdoor and indoor yoga and Pilates. Bicycle, boat, skim board and kayak rentals are available. Trail guides by the Hornby Island Mountain Bike Association are sold at the bike shop and gas bar.
