Robbers Passage/Port Alberni Yacht Club, BC

Port Alberni Yacht Club’s Robbers Passage outstation is open to the public, no reciprocal club required (fees charged to all visitors). The floats are basic but well-maintained. No power is available for visitors, but there is a shower and water on the dock. The water isn’t potable, but many members drink it without any reported ill effects. Moorage is first-come, first-served and the visitor docks are clearly marked. Even if the visitor space is full, club members work hard to fit everyone in.

Club members are full of local knowledge and happy to share information with visitors. The trails are short but well-maintained. We’ve seen many whales in Trevor Channel from the the beaches on Port Alberni Yacht Club’s property.

Cell phone service is limited or non-existent without a booster.
