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

What a great way to end our holiday

We decided on the spur of the moment to pack an overnight bag & drive to Port Alberni. Beautiful day, awesome scenery. We stopped at Cameron Lake for a swim like two giggly kids. It was sooo refreshing. Just driving around, we spotted the Hummingbird & really liked the look of the house & grounds. After Cheryl & Wayne graciously showed us the two empty rooms, the games room, the beautiful backyard and hot tub, we chose the Dogwood Room. It was the best sleep we've had away from home & we loved it so much we stayed another night, did the tourist thing & we're booked for two days in August.
