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.

Wonderful finale to our wedding

We relaxed in the hot tub before spending our honeymoon night in the Sunburst Suite. We woke to rays of sunshine, in a luxurious bed with fabulous pillows surrounded by elegance, charm & comfort. This was the perfect place to awaken at, anticipating how our love would continue to grow from this day forward. We loved our stay here.
