The Orca Inn has a long history in Alert Bay. It has been great fun bringing it back to life. Our cozy pub will welcome you. We have lots of live music planned. Our restaurant should be open soon.
Alert Bay is a peaceful place. Plan on spending a few days here walking along the waterfront boardwalk. Stop and have a coffee at Culture Shock--they have an excellent First Nations gift shop there too. Check out the marina where you'll see working and pleasure boats. There are numerous hiking trails well marked and an excellent village campground. During the summer whale watch groups can be seen in their red survival suits heading out on an expedition. Visit the renowned U'mista Cultural Center which has an excellent mask collection. Many of these masks were repatriated from collections in Europe. They also have an excellent gift shop there. We have a number of excellent restaurants: Passin' Thyme, The Bayside, The Cookshack, Duchesses' Place (and soon....The Orca).
