We are getting enquires from guests checking out Alert Bay for this season's visit. Here's some typical questions.
Is there a difference between Alert Bay and Cormorant Island? The village of Alert Bay is located on Cormorant Island. How isolated is Alert Bay? From Port McNeill, there are six, 35 minute BC Ferry sailings a day. All told, once you turn off for the two-minute drive to Port McNeill and board the ferry, you can be exploring Alert Bay within the hour. What's the weather like? Spring and summer sunshine hours are equivalent to Victoria or Vancouver. You are further north, so expect a 2 or 3 degree difference. Cormorant Island is small - what is there to do? I can honestly say I've never heard a guest say they've been bored. Wildlife tours leave daily from the Island and there are music, art, sports and self-propelled boat festivals and events. Indigenous culture is a huge draw, with tourists coming from all over to see dancing at the Big House, U’mista Cultural Centre, cedar bark weaving and traditional Salmon BBQ. And then there’s just relaxing in this small town, ocean environment. And a common observation from our guests? No white noise.
