Adventure & Activities in Prince Rupert
Getting to Prince Rupert's many attractions is half the adventure, whether it be on an organized tour or a solo excursion. Visitors may tour the city’s shopping districts, waterfront parks and heritage sites on foot, on board a boat or even by plane. Charles Melville Hays or another historical figure may guide a walking tour of Prince Rupert, courtesy of the Museum of Northern BC. There’s fresh seafood at the North Pacific Cannery's seafood bake or lots of great salmon, halibut and crab fishing tours for those who prefer to catch their own. Visitors wishing to cruise Prince Rupert’s harbour may do so in a motorized boat or opt instead to pick up a paddle and pitch-in to power a 29-foot voyageur canoe. The ‘man who fell to earth’ waits patiently for groups of archaeological buffs to dock on Pike Island, home to ancient Tsimshian villages and petroglyphs. Marine and air tours allow visitors to safely meet their hosts: jumping whales, hunting grizzlies and soaring eagles. After a long day of touring, it’ll be a relief to get back to the hotel, have a nice restaurant dinner and prepare for the next day of adventuring in Prince Rupert.
