Spring Rate Extended!

Friday, June 12th, 2009

It’s true, we’ve extended our spring rate of $135 per night to June 25th. Normally our summer rate of $185 kicks in June 15th, but with the economy the way it is, we’re doing what we can to help travellers stretch their dollars and enjoy their stay that much more here on the beautiful, wild West Coast.

A family of Orcas graced us with their presence again on Sunday June 7th — looked like a family of a male, a female and two young “kids”. They came into the harbour around 10:30 that morning, romped around in front of our cabins, then slipped back out of the harbour an hour later. Locals with kayaks were quick to launch with hopes of paddling along side the Killer Whales, but they were too fast to catch up to.

Do come and visit us — we are Wildlife Central with dozens of bald eagles, comical sea lions, harbour seals and river otters all vying for your attention. We look forward to greeting you here at Anchors Inn!

Wild Pacific Trail documentary

Friday, June 5th, 2009

Anchors Inn co-owner, Lance Blackwell, recently completed a 25-minute documentary on Ucluelet’s Wild Pacific Trail and its founder, Oyster Jim Martin.  The public screening took place May 29th with over 120 locals in attendance, with rave reviews!

The film includes some of Lance’s amazing wildlife and storm footage, including our local Gray Whale spring migration and awesome aerials of our beautiful coastline.

Here is the link to view the movie — enjoy! And feel free to pass along the link to friends & family. It is a great ambassador for our town of Ucluelet and the rugged beauty that’s here to enjoy.
