Port Alberni Mini Stacation

If you are looking for something to do in October might I suggest a short stay with our friends in Port Alberni. 

The Lady Rose Marine is offering a half price sale on their sailings to Bamfield for the month of October. For $40 you can enjoy a day long return trip from Port Alberni to Bamfield. This offers west coast scenery at it's finest and the MV Fances Barkely provides a comfortable trip regardless of weather. The galley onboard puts up reasonably priced good eats from breakfast through lunch fare. You can also buy beer and wine onboard.

The trip from Port Alberni to Bamfield offers a variety of wildlife from eagles, bears, sea lions and humback whales to name a few.


A visit to Stamp Falls Park is always enjoyable where you can watch migrating salmon battle up the falls in their final quest to provide the next generation. The fish ladder provides and 'easier' path for those that find it.

Further up river from the falls we were treated to the site of Mama bear fishing to feed herself and her set of triplets, all of which could be seen at one time. A lone male was also spotted further up the river also trying his luck as an angler. While we observed neither bear were successful in their quest for a salmon dinner.

It is a good way to spend a couple of days and I'm sure a little input into the local economy would be appreciated as currently the big payroll in town is still behind a picket line.
