TOURS & Culture

Port McNeill is a quaint town of about 2500 residents and is one of several small communities that make up the northern end of Vancouver Island. We live in an outdoors(wo)mans paradise; vibrant and thriving wildlife, thick lush forests, rugged mountains, cool streams and salty air. Let us help you plan your best vacation -- whale and bear watching, kayaking, fishing and hiking are only a few of the opportunities you have to experience on the North Island! 

 

We've been keeping notes!

Based on our guest feedback we have compiled a list of the most raved about tour operators on the North Island... PLEASE let us know if you have any shining stars to add to our list!
