Cruise for Cancer on Alberni Inlet

MV Frances Barclay set to be the venue for latest anti-cancer fundraiser

PORT ALBERNI — The Canadian Cancer Society and The Lady Rose Marine Services of Port Alberni have joined forces in the battle against cancer.

During the month of March, participants will be able to travel aboard the MV Frances Barkley down the scenic Alberni Inlet from Port Alberni to Bamfields.

Twenty dollars from each adult paid fare will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

These scheduled return trips will take place Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays to Bamfield only.

The ship will depart at 8 a.m. and return to the dock at 4 p.m., with a one hour layover in Bamfield for participants to stroll the boardwalk and visit the general store.

The restaurant onboard the Frances Barkley will be open for breakfast and lunch.

Travellers can expect several stops along they way as the service provides freight drop-offs to many locations along the route.

Wildlife, such as bears, eagles, seals and whales are also a common sight.

Travellers are reminded to dress warmly, however March weather can be very mild during the day.
