Two Night Beaches & Forest Package
Available year round!
In partnership with our sister company Alder Bay Vacation Rentals and our friends at Cove Adventures, we are excited to offer a Beaches & Forest package which includes 2 nights accommodation in one of our deluxe Park Model cottages and a full day adventure to the incomparable San Josef Bay and Cape Scott Provincial Park.
Without a doubt, one of the most amazing things to see at San Josef Bay is the stunning beach and the unique sea stacks. These are ocean-eroded sea stacks that have developed over time from water surging through the sandy passages at high tide slowly eroding the softer rock, leaving behind only the harder formations. Our small & intimate group sizes make exploring the beach and sea stacks fun and informative. Our knowledgeable guides will lead guests to the areas of interest and provide interpretation and tidal pool walks.
The area is loaded with local history and is on the traditional lands of the Tlatlasikwala First Nations. There were also attempts of a Danish settlement from 1887 to 1910 that were unsuccessful due to the remote and harsh climate. Your tour guides will have information on local flora, fauna, and history.
Your adventure base will be Alder Bay RV Park & Marina where you'll stay in one of our unique and cozy 500 sq ft fully self contained Park Model cottages. The cottages feature full kitchens, bathroom & shower and a spectacular ocean views of Johnstone Strait.
Check in anytime after 4pm on day 1 of your package and settle in to your accommodations. You can purchase food and other supplies in nearby Port McNeill (15 minutes away) or you can enjoy a meal at the onsite food truck called Roxy's Diner (roxysdiner.ca). In the morning, on day 2, you'll meet your guides at our office at 830am for your full day adventure to San Josef Bay in Cape Scott Provincial Park. The San Josef Bay beach is expansive and breathtaking. Your guides provide an interpretive walk along the sandy beach, among the sea stacks and through tidal pools. Breathe in the air and watch the waves. Allow the wild West Coast to overtake you. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for bald eagles, osprey, harbour seals, sea otters and many intertidal creatures. The views are vast and the photo opportunities are endless.
Return to Alder Bay by 430pm and enjoy a relaxing evening around a campfire or in the living room of your cottage watching the waves roll by in Johnstone Strait. Depart on the morning of Day 3 by 11am.
We include 2 nights accommodation in a self contained Park Model cottage with full kitchen/bathroom/shower at Alder Bay, guides and transportation for a one day excursion to San Josef Bay.
