Cruise the harbour with YPAV

The event will help the YPAV raise funds for their next community project, providing bike racks at Harbour Quay.

Cruise-goers will spend three hours enjoying the beautiful Alberni Inlet aboard the Frances Barkley.

The Young Professionals of the Alberni Valley are inviting members of the public on a sunset cruise of the Alberni harbour, aboard the MV Frances Barkley, this Saturday, July 4 at 7 p.m.

The event will help the YPAV raise funds for their next community project, providing bike racks at Harbour Quay.

It is also an opportunity for people to check out the Frances Barkley and see the harbour from a different perspective, says YPAV president Jolleen Dick. “Many can’t take a whole day to take a trip with the Frances Barkley so this is a way to enjoy such a trip,” she said.

The three-hour tour will include appetizers and a cash bar.

Tickets are $35 and available at Haven Living, Alberni Chamber of Commerce and visitor centre, Blue Marlin Inn, Char’s Landing, Cloud City, Gayle’s Fashions and Medicine Shoppe at the West Coast Urgent Care Clinic on Maple Way. Also at
