Positioned in the serene waters of British Columbia, Alert Bay is located on Cormorant Island, off the northern tip of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The island itself is part of the traditional territory of the Kwakwaka'wakw First Nations people.

Fun fact: Alert Bay is famous for its totem poles! These elaborately carved wooden sculptures depict stories and histories of the Kwakwaka'wakw people. The poles you see today are replacements for older ones, as the wood can deteriorate over time. The Royal BC Museum in Victoria has a great collection of older totem poles if you're interested in seeing more.
