What to do, what to see? In Port Alberni, BC

Take a ride on the Lady Rose (Frances Barkley)

Posted on Jul 25, 2012 in What to do, what to see? In Port Alberni, BC

The M.V. Frances Barkley was built in 1958 and launched on November 7 as the M/S Rennesoy in Stavanger, Norway. Later renamed the M/S Hidle, she was commissioned to be used in the Norwegian ferry fleet operating out of Stavanger.

Take a ride on the Frances Barkley and enjoy a lovely day trip to Bamfield or Ucluelet and the Broken Islands. It's amazing how many people have lived in Port Alberni their whole lives and never experienced this wonderful trip!

The Frances Barkley sails every day of the week, between three different routes. Check out their website for rates and times. 

Reservations are recommended in the summer.


I'm looking forward to connecting. Due to being in and out of meetings both for council and business, email is typically the best way to get in touch with me. If you prefer to call, that's fine as well, it just may take me slightly longer to get back to you. Texting is also welcomed.
