THe Orca Inn was built in the 1930's in what was formerly the "Chinatown" of Alert Bay. Wong Toy had his hardware store here where many older residents remember buying their first shoes! The other building was the Royal Cafe. Both buildings were combined the form the Orca Inn as it now stands. During the heydays of the fishing industry and before the Island highway was built Alert Bay had many times its present population. There were five bars in town with five bands playing in those bars!

The First Nation's U'Mista museum is a must see. Many wonderful masks have been repatriated from collections around the world. They also have an amazing gift shop. In addition there are cultural activities that take place in the "Big House" .
We often have live music in our pub. Our house band trio (fiddle, guitar, vocals and bass) is called "The Orcastra"
Our Guests say
We enjoyed the views, cold beers and delightful converstions with the owner, a kinda-retired dentist who understandably loves and lives this cozy bar and cool entertainment venue.
Neat and clean. Nice view
An eclectic Inn, in a real authentic west coast island setting.
Amazing Saturday open Mic sessions. Really nice music and amazing people!★★★★★
