Arriving at Prince Rupert late Sunday evening I stayed at the Eagle Bluff Bed and Breakfast located at Cow Bay. This quaint building on the waterfront of Prince Rupert adds a touch of east coast flavor by its wood construction and colours. The breakfasts are tremendous, the hosts making you feel right at home.
Cow Bay is a quaint pocket community in Prince Rupert. It received its name from the first settler that brought in cows that were pushed of the barge. Today the cow is iconic, images of the bovine seen everywhere.
A short distance from Prince Rupert is the North Pacific Cannery, the last of its kind on the BC coast. Designated as a National Historic Site, North Pacific Cannery allows the visitor to step back in time to experience salmon processing at its prime.
