Located on Kaien Island, the port city of Prince Rupert sits perched along the island's northwest shore, facing its eponymous harbor.
Hop aboard a vintage-style wheeled trolley. Your local expert guide points out the highlights of this beautiful and remote coastal city -- the only municipality to be nestled in the majestic Great Bear Rainforest. You will hear about the boom, bust and rebuild of Prince Rupert's tumultuous economy. Learn about the local Tsimshian Nation and Sm'álgyax-speaking people. Wondering how on earth to pronounce that? Your guide has the answer to this and many other riddles.
Take photos of the totem collection with the backdrop of the ocean and mountains that frame the small port.
Continue through the scenic winding streets and past Service Park with amazing views and some of Prince Rupert's earliest residences still intact. Visit the Seal Cove Salt Marsh for photos and the miniature Sunken Gardens Park just across from the cruise terminal.
Take your time and enjoy the Sunken Gardens if you wish and stroll back to the cruise terminal on your own; or, feel free to hop back on the trolley for a final ride back to the ship.
