Port Alice Vancouver Island is a small community located on northwest Vancouver Island. It is located on the shores of Neroutsos Inlet. The community is rich with a unique history and continues to transition from a once booming forestry town to a small and friendly, but vibrant rural community that both residents and visitors enjoy.
Port Alice is surrounded by lush rain forests that are filled with wildlife like black bears, cougars, sea otters, mink, and many others, a place of pristine wilderness that just beckons to the outdoor enthusiasts and a wild west coast sea that is filled with wildlife that includes Orcas, gray whales, porpoises, seals and Stellar sea lions. Returning salmon fill Neroutsos Inlet during spawning season. Colonial Creek is a great place to view the spawning salmon, fall is the time to visit for the spawn.
Port Alice Vancouver Island also offers a wide variety of birds. Eagles are a favorite part of our community and the chance to watch them fishing and hunting is amazing, to say the least. But they are only one of the many birds to see here, there are seabirds and open field birds, deep forest and mountain birds, all kinds of birds.
When visiting here, please remember that you are visiting a pristine wilderness, so take only pictures and leave only footprints. If every person left just 1 piece of trash, it would pile up. We have a habit of picking up trash from others and taking it out. Just think, if everyone took one piece of trash out, how clean the bush would become.
The protected waters of Neurosis Inlet offer an abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities, including whales, sea lions, sea otters, eagles, and much more. Port Alice is a great place to put in a kayak for short or long sea voyages.
