Prince Rupert is a port city located on the coast of British Columbia. It has been a trade gateway to Alaska and the interior of BC since its founding in 1911. It is a world-class seaport and the center of BC's North Coast forest region.
There are many reasons to visit Prince Rupert. One of them is that it has a beautiful waterfront with plenty of parks and green spaces to enjoy. You can also visit the local museums or go hiking through the vast wilderness.
The city is separated into three distinct areas: Old Town, Downtown Prince Rupert, and Sparwood. Old Town is the original town site laid out by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1911 with heritage buildings and blocks which are largely intact today. Downtown Prince Rupert is where you will find most of the businesses and shops that this thriving city has to offer. Sparwood is an industrial area home to many natural resource-based companies - it's also where you can enjoy a scenic walk along one of two beaches in Prince Rupert or visit local attractions like Rocky Point Park or Kluskus Heritage Site, which offers exciting family-friendly activities all year.
The ferry to Prince Rupert is $75 one-way for adults. The ticket is increased by $6 for each additional adult up to a maximum of six. Children aged four and under are not required to purchase a ticket but must be accompanied by an adult who has a valid ticket.
