Great for families, especially kids. Very informative on fish habitat. Not too large but full of information.

Very educational, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the centre and the work that it does. A small centre with just the right balance of information, interactive displays, tour of the working hatchery and a cute gift shop. Very reasonable entrance fee of $6 for an adult admission.

Taking a walking tour without a guide was really interesting to read and learn at your own pace.taking a tour you are rushed to move on.but reading at your own skill and seeing the fish at different stages of life,very interesting.I recommend it for every one who can read English and understand the language to visit this place.

We very much enjoyed our visit on August 23, 2013. The interpretive centre is an excellent source of information about the life of the salmon and the role of the hatchery, especially for kids. A very knowledgeable staff member gave us a tour of the facilities with a full explanation of how the fish are raised and returned to the river. It was a real highlight of our visit to Port Hardyfor our 7-year old grandson
