Prince Rupert is a port city surrounded by untamed nature. This makes it a perfect destination for water-based activities, including amazing ocean fishing.
This is one of BC's fishing hot spots. Situated on the migratory salmon routes of the north coast waters, it's rich in salmon, giant halibut, rockfish, lingcod, crab and prawns. A number of great charters are available.
The city is also the beginning and end point of various transportation routes – rail, ferries and local seaplanes – giving visitors many easily accessible opportunities to explore through different avenues.
The rich First Nations culture, tasty seafood and more modern attractions such as lounge restaurants and a casino make Prince Rupert a fun place to poke around in.
