Found in an unincorporated community on Swindle Island in the coastal fjords of British Columbia, Klemtu Port belongs to a tiny town on the west coast of Canada. According to the 2007 census, only 505 people permanently reside in Klemtu, making it one of the smallest towns by population in the country. The town of Klemtu, especially its surrounding waters, shot to relative fame in 1968 when Sasquatch was reportedly spotted around the shore, though after a hunt from the local fisherman it was never officially seen.
Unsurprisingly, considering the size of the town, there is only one ferry company operating in the port, and they only offer one crossing per week. The port connects to one of Canada’s largest and busiest cities, Vancouver; the crossing lasts up to 12 hours and is supplied by BC Ferries, a reliable and respected company in the area.
Due to its location in the northern hemisphere and its proximity to the sea, Klemtu Port can become incredibly cold, causing a shock for first time visitors. Passengers are advised to wear several layers to ensure they are comfortable and warm.
