Welcome to Hornby Island, the jewel of the Gulf
Tucked in the middle of the Salish Sea, our community will draw your creative soul. Ours is a world of sandy beaches, lush forests, and joyful revelling. Many of us came for a visit, and stayed for life!
Situated in the calm protected waters of the Georgia Strait between the mainland and Vancouver Island, Hornby is an excellent place to experience ocean kayaking. Depending on the time of year, you will see eagles, seals, sea lions, whales, interesting intertidal life and diverse bird species.
Hornby Recreation is a committee of the Hornby Island Residents’ and Rate Payers’ Association. Hornby Recreation’s mandate is to provide recreation programs for all members of the community and visitors all year round and to promote a healthy way of being in which physical activity is a valued and integrated way of everyday life.
