The Historic Town of Port Alice

 

Port Alice boasts a long list of excellent outdoor recreation opportunities in and around the community, including fishing, boating, golfing, hiking, mountain biking and camping. The Neroutsos Inlet, part of Quatsino Sound, offers prime saltwater fishing and presents many sheltered inlets and bays that are perfect for kayaking or diving. A short distance from the village, the Marble River Campsite on Highway 30, Link River and Spruce Bay Campsites on Alice Lake, Victoria Lake and the Port Alice RV Park are among the many possibilities for freshwater fishing, camping, swimming and outdoor recreation. The Marble River Trail, located just off Highway 30, features a hiking trail to breathtaking Bear Falls.

Mountain bikers and hikers can experience the Rumble Mountain Bike Trail, offering beginner and advanced downhill and cross-country trails just behind the village. Explorers also love the unique land features such as Devil’s Bath, Disappearing River and Eternal Fountain, rare limestone formations that are part of a karst system that honeycombs the region.

Within the Village the Seawalk, a wheelchair-accessible pathway, offers visitors a chance to wander along the community coastline, have a picnic or journey to Walk-out Island at low tide. The Seawalk also provides excellent vantage points for wildlife viewing. Many species of birds, migrating salmon, orca and grey whales and Stellar sea lions all visit Neroutsos Inlet at different times throughout the year. If you are keen to get onto the water, there are fishing and wildlife viewing charters available.
