Getting to Port McNeill, BC

Nanaimo to Port McNeill – 352 km (219 miles)

If your going to drive, you will need to take a ferry to Vancouver Island and drive north on Hwy.19 to Port McNeill on the north east coast of Vancouver island. You can take a ferry to Victoria, BC, or Nanaimo, BC. It is approximently 220 miles (or 350 km.) from Nanaimo to Port McNeill and 290 miles (or 460 km.) from Victoria, BC.
The most scenic ride (in my humble opinion) would be from Horseshoe Bay, just north of Vancouver, to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. I have included a list of links to ferries, busses, shuttles, airlines etc., to help you plan your route.
