Four of us took this trip August 17 and were thrilled. We were able to get breakfast on board prepared by a very dedicated cook! The scenery is beautiful with the weather improving to sunshine. Spotted whales 4 times! Bald Eagle. Newspaper provides interesting stories maps of the area to compliment trip. We love Bamfield want to return for an overnight trip.

This is a working boat that delivers freight and passengers to various outports along the Port Alberni inlet. They also carry return passengers who just want to go along for the ride. The trip was very enjoyable and the food in the cafe was good and reasonably priced but it is a long day (from 8AM to at least 5PM). We saw beautiful scenery and interesting settlements along the way as well as some whales. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has a full day to spend in Port Alberni.

We enjoyed the ship tour of the inlet, seeing the small outposts along the way. Whale sighting as we left Bamfield was amazing! The only downside was the extremely uncharacteristic warm weather, it was very warm and sunny.

Haven't visited this area before, but had several people suggest the trip to either Bamfield or Ucluelet. We chose the Bamfield trip and we're glad we did. Crew were great and the fact that this is a working cargo vessel is an added bonus. Only reason I didn't give it 5* is because I found the seats to be very uncomfortable after a very short time, an observation I heard from more than one passenger. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our day on the water.

A very relaxing and joyful trip. Morning was a bit cloudy and rainy for us. But afternoon onwards it was awesome! Could not get much time to spend there at Bamfield.
