Alert Bay "Home of the Killer Whale"

Located on Cormorant Island, Alert Bay is more than a charming fishing village. It is the repository of thousands of years of First Nations art and culture.

The U'mista Cultural Centre displays a world class collection of Kwakwaka'wakw art and artifacts. The Centre's principal theme is the potlatch ceremony...its origins, meaning, ritual, its ultimate suppression and its present renaissance as a vital aspect of Native culture. There is also a Library-Museum, which is located beside the Visitor Information Centre.

Alert Bay today is an exciting mix of recreational and cultural opportunities for the visitor. Hiking trails, Native tours, First Nation Dance performance (July & August in the Traditional Big House),

Kayaking, Fishing charters, and some fine accommodations and dining.

To make your stay in Alert Bay totally unforgettable...take a stroll on the boardwalk, over and through the Ecological Park...an exquisitely beautiful cedar swamp.
