Prince Rupert is a little marine city (population: 15,000) with one-of-a-kind wilderness exploration and wildlife viewing experiences on Northwest BC's Pacific Coast. It's also a popular stop on various Alaskan cruises.
Spend a day exploring the town or set out on an adventure. Main attractions in the port town include spectacular ocean fishing; cultural tours, whale-watching tours and grizzly bear-viewing tours; and enjoying amazingly fresh seafood at Prince Rupert's various restaurants.
In Prince Rupert, tame deer wander certain neighbourhood streets, while wild grizzly bears can be viewed in a sanctuary from boats just northeast of the city. Whales swim and play in the deep ocean about an hour offshore.
