Centennial Pier is located downtown in the inner harbour at the Harbour Quay. Famous its panoramic vistas – including the best view in town of the iconic snow-capped top of Mount Arrowsmith – shops, galleries, dining, Lady Rose Marine Services and the Alberni Pacific Railway the Harbour Quay is a destination point for residents and visitors of the Alberni Valley.
The Port Authority utilizes Centennial Pier to host tender boats from cruise ships and welcome visitors to explore and enjoy the Alberni Valley.
Also located on Centennial Pier is Swept Away Inn; a floating bed and breakfast, is a converted 100-foot tug with several state rooms onboard and dining with a French-Moroccan flare. They invite you for the night or for a private dinner and/or function. The dining is amazing and the overall experience is unique and not to be missed when enjoying the Alberni Valley.
Developed by the Port Alberni Port Authority, in partnership with funding contributions from the Governments of Canada and Island Coastal Economic Trust, Centennial Pier opened in 2012 during the City of Port Alberni’s Centennial Anniversary in for the valuable protection of Fishermen’s Harbour and to the enjoyment of the community at large. We have hosted many activities and events, brought businesses with unique experiences to the pier and we continue to welcome opportunities for our community and visitors to enjoy the waterfront via Centennial Pier.
