A nice way to see the coast - wildlife was spotted at a number of sites along the route. Cute, off-the-grid settlements are visited. Passengers include tourists and locals heading to/from Port Alberni town. Informative skippers (given that they are required to focus on their duties). A heck of a good day. Wonderful soup and the usual mix of grilled... More

Arrive early in the AM to watch the loading....we left on the dot of 8 and for 4 hours travel down the sound....a couple of stops to deliver the freight....and view some wildlife. The captain...

This is a wonderful scenic trip on the Alberni Inlet. Chances to see bears, eagles and other sea creatures. Stopping at Sechart Lodge is an interesting drop off point for kayakers and visitors to the Broken Group Islands.

A great trip down the inlet to Bamfield, stopping off at a few places enroute to deliver vital goods to people who live in fairly remote places. We spotted numerous bald eagles, a couple of humpback whales, a bear, blue heron and countless birds. The skipper gave excellent sighting alerts and commentary as and when it was safe for him...

Enjoyed a relaxing day on the water. The MV Frances Barkley left the dock at the exact departure time. The weather forecast was questionable, but it turned out to be good. Sailing along the Alberni Inlet provides for beautiful scenery, and sometimes amazing wildlife viewing. Two months a year in fall and winter Lady Rose Marine Services provides a 50%... More

Spent the day aboard the MV Francis Barkley when everyone else was hunkering down in fear of a storm that was supposed to hit the Island on Oct 15th. We had checked in with the Staff before we left Victoria and they assured us that they would be sailing that day but if we felt unsure that we could cancel... More

Wow what a great day! Who knew that delivering mail could be so much fun. The scenery and wildlife was amazing. It was nice to get breakfast on the boat. Coffee was about the only weak point. The Captain was knowledgeable and the crew competent. We were a varied group but all of us enjoyed the day. It was worth... More
