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
