Port Alberni Salmon Derby

September Long Weekend...Nothing beats Port Alberni's Salmon Festival for awesome fishing and a rollicking good time. Every year on the September long weekend at Clutesi Marina. Fishers come from all over Vancouver Island and beyond to compete for cash prizes and the coveted largest derby catch award. 2008 saw the first woman take home the top prize.

During Salmon Festival, the whole city celebrates! The Friday night's fireworks is a great kickoff! Eat your fill of BBQ Salmon, kick back at the beer gardens, try your aim at the Celebrity dunk tank and enjoy the music of local singers and bands. All conveniently held at the Clutesi Marina. For the children, there's the Lion's Club Bullhead Derby held on the rocks around the marina.

The Hummingbird is conveniently located just 5 blocks down the road from Clutesi Marina. So whether is walking down to the festival or a secure parking spot for your boat and trailer, The Hummingbird is the place to stay.






Guest Reviews

It was completely by chance

and extraordinary good luck that we came to stay at the Hummingbird. When Cheryl showed us to our fabulous "apartment", we were astounded and have enjoyed every moment in it. We did drag ourselves away to visit Tofino, Ucluelet and the Pacific Rim National Park where we walked the Rainforest Trail. Back in Port Alberni, we took the steam railway to the sawmill, bringing back memories of school lessons many years ago about logging in Canada. An interesting visit to the Mars Bombers at Sproat Lake, only 15 min from the Hummingbird, and watching salmon swimming up to spawn at Stamp Falls. This is our last week in Canada and it just gets better.
