Bears From The Boardwalk

Vancouver Island is home to thousands of black bears and while it's exciting to take backcountry tours to experience wildlife in its natural habitat, it's not always necessary to work that hard - especially when you are staying at the Hummingbird in Port Alberni! Our adventurous black bears like to play and catch salmon right across the Somass River, in front of the B&B Inn. And they can often be found snoozing in the warm sunshine in the Hummingbird's backyard or climbing the various fruit trees and munching on the blackberries. The best time is in late summer and early fall when both the fruit and salmon are plentiful. Imagine looking up from breakfast to see a black bear ambling through the back yard. Have your cameras at the ready! The Hummingbird is a perfect vantage point for human admirers to catch the bears in action!


Guest Reviews

The Hummingbird truly deserves its name

We found the Hummingbird by chance on our way to Long Beach. We were a bit reluctant to stay at a B&B because we'd had an unpleasant experience the night before at a B&B in Victoria. For this reason, we first asked to see the rooms before committing to stay. We were immediately impressed. The rooms were as beautiful, cheerful, friendly, clean and bright as a hummingbird. We all decided to stay, we even stayed one more night than originally planned.
