Port McNeill - Hub of the North Island

Port McNeill, BC

Offering warm hospitality to visitors, Port McNeill is the gateway to northern Vancouver Island. As well as being so close to the amenities and activities of the north island, there are many recreation opportunities for the visitor right in the Port McNeill area.

Area streams are great for trout and winter steelhead sportfishing, while endless coastal waters are famous for salmon fishing. Local forest companies give free forest tours to let the visitor see what is happening in the forest. BC Ferries offers visitors a chance to take a day trip to Alert Bay and Sointula to enjoy the sights of these two communities. Other visitors may wish to explore the forested mountains or endless lakes and streams by hiking or biking.
