Travelled to and from Ucluelet this week on the Francis Berkley, with a 2 night stopover. The boat is a working vessel that carries passengers and freight/post to the various outposts along the inlet and islands. The scenery is spectacular and we saw some wildlife. If you aren't bothered having a car when you get to Ukee then this is for you. It takes between 4-5 hours and is seasonal, and we loved it. Friendly, efficient staff and a little canteen on board too. It was a Norwegian based ship originally and is like a little Hurtigruten experience!
We loved it.

Wanted to do this for some time, and so pleased we did. The Scottish Captain was excellent and informative. Food was basic, but good enough. Well worth a day of your time. Book it

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.
