Port Alberni - A Look At Our Area
Port Alberni is the gateway to outstanding hiking, paddling, kayaking, scuba diving, wildlife viewing, mountain biking, golfing and more.
Built originally on the success of the forest and fishing industries, Port Alberni offers a deep sea port, beautiful waterfront quays, an airport, a new hospital, shopping mall, casino, and a well-developed recreational facilities and municipal infrastructure. The port, one of North America’s best deep-sea jumping-off points, still harbours an active commercial fishing fleet. This “Gateway to the Pacific Rim” offers some of B.C.'s best recreational fishing – for both salt and fresh water.
