Known as the gateway to the waterways of the Broughton Archipelago, Port McNeill is a grade-A stepping stone to outdoor adventure in the land of the Kwakiutl people.

Vancouver Island North’s second-largest community co-exists with the rich natural resources of land and sea. Originally a base camp for loggers, Port McNeill became a settlement in 1936. Its location and proximity to the finest island gems on the east side of Vancouver Island make it a regional centre for ecotourism. Wildlife viewing, whale watching, grizzly-bear safaris, diving, sea kayaking, and fresh and saltwater fishing are some activities enjoyed by residents and tourists alike.

An interesting tidbit of trivia is that the first, second, and fourth seasons of the History Channel television show Alone were filmed in the forest outside Port McNeill.
