The Hakai recreation Area, located about 130 km north of Port Hardy
and 115 km southwest of Bella Coola
, is the largest provincial marine park on the British Columbia coast. The dramatic contrast between marine and terrestrial landscapes makes it special within the BC provincial park system. The area includes some of the most varied and scenic coastline in the province with special features that include lagoons, reversing tidal rapids, and beaches. Over 100 species of birds have been identified in the area, as have many mammals such as black-tailed deer and wolves.
There are no developed facilities in the park. A floating headquarters is moored in Pruth Bay at Calvert Island from May to September.
This is just one of hundreds of British Columbia Provincial Parks.
