Step One: set up an invoicing account with the Lady Rose Marine Services (ferry delivery for your groceries) via phone. Check here: https://ladyrosemarine.com/contacts and phone them to set up a method of payment for the delivery in advance (this only needs to be done once). You should also check their schedule or if there are any announcements on their webpage before making orders. They typically comes out Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturdays and delivers packages to the Bamfield west government dock at around noon and the East Government dock (near the Hacas Inn) at around 12:30.
Step Two: order the groceries from Port Alberni Save-on Foods location and when checking out choose delivery. Choose a delivery time on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday afternoon from 2:00-4:00 pm from their options (so that it’s prior to the ferry delivery day). They will deliver the groceries to Lady Rose Marine services in the specified time and the boxes will be put in appropriate places (freezer, fridge or room temp storage) until the next morning when they leave early to come to Bamfield with the delivery.
