Reviews for Alert Bay Boat Harbour
wonderful stopover, 2016-08-14
Captain: , Vida, Oregon (20)

August 2016
Arriving at Alert Bay was a delightful experience from the friendly marina staff to the quaint First Nations village complete with several very good eating establishments, market, hardware store and a First Nations cultural center and museum. The marina has a definitely fishing boat charm found only in small villages. Be sure and visit Duchess Bannock and Deserts for some outstanding bannock bread with either local berries or a breakfast sandwich. The Bayside Inn has chicken curry and tandorie halibut that is delicious. Walking about the town is easy and close to the marina.

This was one of our favourite spots. We absolutely loved this place. Had a hard time reaching on the VHF but once we did, we were very impressed. You must visit the cultural centre. Great info and excellent tour.

After four phone calls and 3 tries on the VHF we had to pass them by. We went on to Port McNeill. The folks there suggested that it may still be early in the season for them.



Place to stay in Alert Bay, 2012-09-03
Captain: , Seattle, WA (437)

We think this is the best way to visit the U'mista cultural center and see the other heritage sites in Alert Bay. The harbour saves space for visitors during the summer. They have good water and laundry machines avaialble. You could also take the ferry to Port McNeill or Sointula if you wanted.

Friendly and accomodating Harbormaster. Don't miss the U'Mista Cultural Center. Amazing First Nation artifacts.
