Port Alice is surrounded by rugged wilderness and tidal and non-tidal waters that are home to a wide variety of wildlife and marine mammals. This includes deer, black bears, cougars, eagles, sea otters, Orca, gray whales and Stellar sea lions.
Chum, Coho and Chinook salmon can be seen frolicking in Neroutsos Inlet during peak run times. The salmon may be observed in Colonial Creek and Cayeaghle Creek at peak spawning periods usually in October.
Port Alice also offers a wide variety of birds. Eagles are a favorite part of our community and the chance to watch them fishing and hunting is amazing to say the least. A full list of local birds are available in the link at right.
Some wildlife are only present for short periods of time, so it is best to plan your visit when they are at home!
When visiting these areas please remember that you are visiting wild creatures in their home. Leave their homes clean, and keep your pets under control on a leash at all times. Please read about bear and cougar safety in the links at right.
