Tour Highlights:Without a doubt, one of the most amazing things to see at San Josef Bay are the sea stacks. The sea stacks at San Josef Bay are some of the only ocean-eroded stacks on Vancouver Island, and are certainly the most extreme. Water surging through the sandy passages at high tide has slowly eroded the softer rock, leaving behind only the harder formations. In some spots, this effect has left behind the sea stacks, a remarkable feature, but one found fairly commonly around the world.
Scenic Drive & Wildlife Viewing:The San Josef Bay hiking tour begins with a comfortable drive in our climate-controlled 15-passenger van. During the drive always make sure to keep your eyes peeled as there is a good chance of seeing black bears and other wildlife. Upon leaving Port Hardy we will be travelling on active logging roads and will pass through the historic logging town of Holberg. We will make a quick stop at the Scarlet Ibis Pub in Holberg where guests will have access to washrooms and the pre-ordered boxed lunches will be picked up. Hike Details:About 30 minutes down the road we will come to the Cape Scott Provincial Park trail-head. From here we will walk approximately 45 minutes on a well-maintained trial that goes through old-growth stands of forests and swamps. There is an outhouse at the trail head and the beach.
