Working Cargo Ships


Travel down the Alberni Inlet aboard the MV Lady Rose, or MV Frances Barkley. Many who visit the Alberni Valley come for the chance to ride along on two working cargo ships as they travel on scheduled day trips to remote Bamfield on Ucluelet on the Island’s West Coast, stopping at isolated communities with regular deliveries of groceries, mail and other necessities.


As well, kayakers of all skill levels, hearing of this opportunity for challenge and experience, come to access the Broken Group Islands, using these vessels to shorten their journey to solitude and spectacularly scenic experiences.
