Reviews for Port Neville Governent Dock
Wish there was more, 2016-07-28
Captain: , Whittier Alaska (839)

By the notice posted on the warf, it would appear there is a petition for the private party to take over ownership of the entire dock. Good place to get out of windy Johnstone.

Nice stop over, kind of a take back to the 80's and prior, 2016-05-28

Dock seems to be still under the Crown ownership, there is no local harbor master. It is exposed (esp the outside) to winds / waves off the straight, but we found it not too bad in light to moderate winds.

Upland area is private - but a sign, and nice history billboard, welcomes visitors to wander around in a respectful way.

We enjoyed our stay.

Good stopover, 2015-02-15
Captain: , Cowichan Bay, BC (838)

We stopped here 2 nights ago and had a good visit with a local on the dock. I'd stick pretty close to the boat in bear season - he had a hair raising story about an 800# grizzly that chased him into his cabin twice. That was a career limiting move for that particular bear and he won't be any further trouble but no doubt he has relatives who are also local residents and they may be in mourning for Uncle Buck. The dock is rough and there's not a lot of space but its a great spot to overnight if its available. There's a pretty strong current sets lengthwise along the dock so make sure you know which way it is flowing when you pull in.

Great stop for what it is, 2014-09-09

We stopped here both northbound and southbound from The Broughton Islands. No amenities of any kind, but dock is solid and secure, and nice to get off the boat to stretch our legs. Lots of bears including grizzlies in the area, according to the missionary couple who has a 5-year lease on the former caretaker's house, so we didn't walk beyond the large dock. He came down and caught our lines both times. Lots of current running along the dock so use good fenders. Pretty scenery and nice to get out of Johnstone Strait. Free to tie up overnight.

A safe stop in a blow, 2010-12-24

We enjoyed meeting the Harbor Mistress and her daughter whom she home-schooled. We had a dessert pot-luck in the old store building. The government dock is free so I can't complain about it's condition.

An historic old port dating back to the turn-of-the century. Government floats which would serve in a strong wind, but no amenities on shore. Grassy areas for walking and historic, but privately-owned buildings ashore. Watch out for bears, cougars!
