Port Alberni is a waterfront community at the heart of the west coast of Vancouver Island. It is situated at the end of a 48 km long inlet and offers access to wilderness so amazing, you will only realize it when you're there. As a gateway to the West Coast of Vancouver Island and the Pacific Rim National Park, Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds, world class diving and the incredible sport-fishing available, the surroundings are incredible. Surging rivers filled with salmon and trout compete for attention with a rain forest of giant trees towering more than 61 m (200 ft) into the heavens.  The City of Port Alberni offers a deep sea port, beautiful waterfront quays, an airport, a new hospital, shopping mall, casino, and a well-developed array of recreational facilities and a vast supporting infrastructure often found in much larger cities.
