About BC Ferries



Journey to the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest

Board the ferry in Port Hardy and step into a world of rugged glacial fjords, towering old-growth rainforests and rich First Nations history. Watch for otters, sea lions and humpback whales in the picturesque waters of the Inside Passage as you journey 10 hours north to Bella Coola. Surrounded by the natural beauty of BC’s central coast, you’re free to explore the mist-shrouded streams and ancient cedars of the famed Great Bear Rainforest. When in Bella Coola, hike to spectacular lookouts and hidden waterfalls, or take a wildlife tour to the more secluded sections of the forest to see Kermode, Black and Grizzly bears in their natural habitat. As eagles soar overhead and the forest stretches silently into the horizon, the feeling of this spectacular place will inscribe itself into your memory. This route can be travelled in either direction.
