Year-round on Hornby Island, residents and visitors share the shorelines and forested parkland with abundant local wildlife, including eagles, sea lions, seals, otters, seabirds and, occasionally, orcas. Kayakers and boaters can often see these animals close up. Many visitors take in the beautiful scenery by hiking, biking. Others use the quiet surroundings to draw, paint or just relax with a book.
