Ford Cove Trail • 3.2km • 

Stretching between Ford Cove and the ferry landing at Shingle Spit, Ford Cove Trail is a great walk and easy ride. Once at Shingle Spit, you can enjoy food and drinks at the Thatch Pub and Wheelhouse  Restaurant. 

Whale watching

Marine wildlife thrive in the waters surrounding Ford Cove Harbour, including  Orcas, (Killer Whales) and Humpbacks. Other aquatic animals include Sea Lions, Seals, and Pacific white sided Dolphins.
