This website is where you register on-line. Each year the Alert Bay 360 limits registration to 200 vessels.
The registration fee is used to help purchase some of the incredible prizes which are given away by random draw at the awards ceremony. All you need to do is finish the race and your number will be entered in the random draws.
We have thousands of dollars in prizes, including First Nation art work and carvings. Last year we gave away a 4 foot exquisitely carved totem pole, as well as masks, plaques, camping equipment, paddling equipment, resort stays, BC Ferries passes, cash and more!
Every year we award cash prizes to the top 3 male and female finishers in a single kayak. First place $500, second place $250, and third place $100.
This year we have a surprise prize! Each year we have noticed more and more double kayaks participating in the event. So, we have decided to award $500 to the first place finishers who are in a double kayak. (No second or third prizes will be awarded).
But, you know what, it’s really not all about winning. It’s all about PARTICIPATION. So, come and relax, take in the sights, and watch for the whales. One year there was a grey whale leisurely foraging in the kelp bed during the race, and a slight detour had to be made. After all, we didn’t want to disturb her lunch!
