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

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.

Book the Wildlife and Lighthouse tour. It is not well represented on Norwegians excursion list but it was amazing! The boat is a multimillion dollar, very comfortable boat with huge windows that are ceiling to floor with two indoor levers and 3 outdoor. If you want to see whales, do this one! We saw one whale in the distance and while 5 other boats were rushing toward that one, our captain got word that there was something better 15 minutes away. We saw up close 6 humpback whales bubble net fishing. That is where they make a circle of bubbles to trap the fish and shoot straight up, mouths open to catch them. Breathtaking!

We chose this port for our whale watching because it was the one where Orcas were mentioned as a possibility. The four-hour tour was terrific and very rewarding. Humpbacks as well as Orcas. The guide and the crew of the small boat were excellent. Got some great pix.

Had some cute, different shops from the other ports - just a small selection. We only stayed about an hour. Saw the Sunken Gardens which were good. Visited the museum gift shop. Would have rather stopped at Vancouver.

Not much happening in this town. Should have considered a whale seeking excursion.
