Prince Rupert

Experience Our Island

Prince Rupert is small town friendly with big city amenities: fine stores and restaurants, a performing arts center, swimming pool, golf course, racquet courts and an outstanding civic centre with gymnasium and arena. The salt water fishing here is among the world's finest. Prawning and crabbing are also popular. Prince Rupert is recognized today as being one of the world's largest and leading ports, exporting billions of dollars in coal, grain, lumber and potash every year. Yet in spite of being a thriving small metropolis, one can travel here and have a peaceful, tranquil holiday. Charter a boat and catch some of the salmon, halibut and other ground fish that can be caught in its waters. Tour the city and see the reproductions of cedar totem poles that were carved hundreds of years ago. Sail through time on a harbour tour, seeing ancient villages along the shores, or look for whales.
