An amazing experience. Beautiful, calm, unique experience on boat! Our hosts were beyond gracious. The breakfast was amazing and it was all worth so much more than I paid. I am so grateful to have made new friends. They went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and part of the family for Thanksgiving.

Daniel and Bouchra are wonderful hosts and the communal experience on the tugboat is very pleasant. Be sure to pack light and small as there is not very much room to put your things but you don't need very much to have a wonderful time. The locale is also very lovely and inviting. Bouchra's cooking is definitely a must to experience. Both breakfast and dinner were delicious.

Staying at Daniel's and Bouchra's tugboat was an amazing and unforgettable experience. To stay at a boat is a unique experience itself but Daniel and Bouchra made it something special. They made us feel so very welcome, the boat and cabins are so cozy and the breakfast let us only imagine what the Moroccan dinner would be like. Even though Daniel and Bouchra work so hard every day throughout the season they still take their time to talk to each of their guests and while sitting there with your glass of wine or beer you feel like you wanna stay up all night sharing stories. Daniel and Bouchra are very inspiring people with so many interesting projects planned for their future. We will definitely be back to listen to more stories and to finally get a taste of the Moroccan dinner.

This b&b is situated in a lovely area in downtown Port Alberni. Daniel and Bouchra are fantastic hosts and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable during our stay with them. Thanks so much!!

A great adventure to stay on a tugboat! The boat is wonderfully designed with lots of great common spaces to hang out or meet new people. Dan gave us lots of tips on places to hike and directions to swimming holes.... we had the best day. Port Alberni is a real gem if you know where to look for the good stuff! Bouchra is an exceptional chef and cooked the most amazing breakfast. They were charming and interesting and a pleasure to hang out with. Disappointed about a couple of things.... That we didn't have a chance to have one of Bouchra's legendary dinners and we couldn't stay longer. We'll definitely be back! Thanks again!

Located in the quaint and charming port-side town of Port Alberni, far off the beaten path is the unique Swept Away Inn. The historical and circa 1944 Tugboat converted int(URL HIDDEN)lays moored in stark contrast to the modern Pier on to which it is docked. Stepping on to the boat we were welcomed aboard by the most charming couple Daniel and Bouchra. The eclectic surroundings and memorabilia takes you back to time when indulgence and enjoyment were in vogue. The exhilarating sea air goes well with the sumptuous Moroccan inspired meals, created from love, tradition and passion from the most aromatic spices of North Africa. Much like the legendary Ricks Cafe in Casablanca denizens from Canada and all over the world gather over the delicious breakfast and dinner, sharing stories over wine and drinks which in combination with the gentle rocking of the boat contribute to a deep and restful nights sleep. Daniel's warm attentiveness and Bouchra's contagious exuberance are the soul of this sea side adventure. An out of the ordinary experience that makes you want to come back, we would highly recommend the Swept Away Inn for travelers looking for something different. Thank you so much Bouchra for this treat and play it again Dan... :)

Dan and Bouchra are fantastic hosts! They have lots of suggestions for things to do in Port Alberni, and it was so nice to get to know other guests on the tug boat over evening drinks. The most amazing breakfast was prepared every morning, and we were fortunate enough that one of our evenings overlapped with dinner; Bouchra and Dan prepared a delicious 4 course dinner! Our stay with them was a real highlight of our 3 week trip to BC!
