Where are we?!?

Port Alice

The small northern Vancouver island community of Port Alice was founded 1917 due to it's suitability for a mill location. The Neroutsos Inlet is one of the deepest waterways on Vancouver Island making it ideal for the logging industry. The original town site was located close to the mill until a landslide in 1965 prompted a move to the current location. While the mill provided Port Alice with a robust economic environment until it's closing in 2015 Port Alice has turned to tourism which is a natural fit due to the pristine waters and abundant marine life.
