Getting there: Lady Rose Ferry - Port Alberni to Bamfield - pg. 1
In September 1999 two young ladies from Muenster Germany, Sylvia Daniels and Christiane Saake, traveled to Canada's rugged and beautiful west coast on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. On a vacation of adventure and exploration along the world famous West Coast Trail they kept a photo journal of their 10 day trip. It was our very good fortune to meet Sylvia and Christiane when they stayed at Birds of a Feather B&B at the end of their trip. Now, here for all to enjoy, are some excellent photos of their trip. Thank you Christiane and Sylvia for sharing these photos with everyone.
are several different points of entry of the West Coast Trail and also numerous
ways to get there. Christiane and Sylvia took the
West Coast Trail Express Bus from Victoria to Port Alberni and then took passage
with "M.V. Lady Rose / M.V. Frances Barkley"

Bamfield. This ferry service does not take motor vehicles but will carry a
