Depressing. Bear catamaran excursion was cancelled. High point was the little northern BC museum.

This was the final stop for this port as cruise ships stopped going there.

Again close to town. Walked to town, went to the sunken garden, visited a wood carver at work we discovered on the walk. Lots of fun!

Not a review as such, as I haven't been yet, but just wanted people who will be in port on 1st October 2017 to know that I made enquiries and the cannery will be opening for the final cruise visitors that day, rather than closing on 30th September as their website states and the local buses will also be running their Sunday schedule. Might be helpful if you're struggling to fill your day.
Keep an eye out for eagles....they will fly right by your balcony and perch in front of ship! Great ice cream near by as well.

With a 5pm (!?) arrival, it was a waste. We actually made it back to the ship in one hour. Would have made it in less, if it was not for a few stores immediately left of the pier. Eatlier arrival would have allowed for wildlife viewing and nice hikes. As it is, hardly worth getting off the ship. Best view of harbor is from the ship itself. The only people who reported a good time were the 12 (yes, only 12 seats) who booked a ride on a Zodiac craft and got very close to the whales.

Interesting history. Jet boat ride up the river with spectacular scenery.

There was a medical emergency the night before which delayed our arrival by approximately 2 hours. As a result everything was closed. It was raining and windy so there was no point in going ashore.
Prince Rupert was nice. The shops are cute and everyone was so kind to us. Our excursion was to the Butze Rainforest and I would go back again if just to visit this again. It was great! The only thing was that the downtown was a bit small and a little pricey, but other than that it was so fun.
