An established and highly efficient inter-modal transportation network connects Asia to the heart of Canadian and US consumer markets.

Prince Rupert has long been a major force in fishing and seafood harvesting. Prince Rupert is also establishing itself as a hot spot for renewable energy, aquaculture and cultural and eco-tourism opportunities. It is ideally situated for wind and tidal power generation and the nutrient rich waters of the North Pacific are a perfect location for shellfish aquaculture.

This is where the breath taking scenery of the north coast combines with first-class recreational attractions, state-of-the-art transportation and telecommunication infrastructure, abundant natural resources and countless business development opportunities related to port development and expanding new sectors.

This is the fishing experience that awaits you in Prince Rupert, a sport fishing destination to rival any in the world.

Escape the crowd in this last frontier of sport fishing. The waters around Prince Rupert are rich in the nutrients that support an abundant resident fish population and straddle the migratory salmon routes. Here you can fish all five species of salmon: Chinook, Coho, Chum, Pink and Sockeye. Yet salmon are only the beginning. Jig for halibut, lingcod, or the various species of rockfish, and enjoy the flavorful crab, prawns and shrimp.

Those who prefer freshwater angling will reap dramatic rewards. The Skeena River is one of British Columbia’s most important salmon producers and is famous for its wild salmon and steelhead. The fly and bar fishing are phenomenal.

The wilderness around Prince Rupert is sprinkled with lakes and streams that feature great cutthroat and rainbow trout fishing. Some visitors even book fly-in cabins on our remote mountain lakes.

The best thing of all is that all of this is right on Prince Rupert’s doorstep, so that every amenity of this beautiful port city lies close at hand. From here you can launch your independent adventure, or hire the services of one of our experienced and knowledgeable local guides for a half day, full day or overnight trip.

The Northwest Coast offers more fish, with fewer crowds. Make your dreams come true in this sport fishing paradise.

There is nothing that compares to the sight of wildlife at home in the northern rainforest. Given Prince Rupert’s coastal location, it is no surprise that some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities involve boats and airplanes.

The Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary, the only one of its kind in North America, protects prime grizzly habitat. Some 50 grizzlies, along with numerous black bears, are known to make their home in the area. Situated northeast of Prince Rupert, the Khutzeymateen is accessible by air and by water.

Eagles and gulls are a common site, and deer wander freely through area streets and gardens. Spending a quiet moment watching the boats along the waterfront is often rewarded by a glimpse of a harbor seal, or one of many species of seabirds. On rare occasions even humpback or killer whales.

History : Traders, attracted first by sea otter pelts then trade, arrived in the early 19th century. Europeans quickly saw the potential for wealth in salmon and soon approximately two hundred canneries were built and running along the Northwest coast. A diverse mix of foreigners (Europeans and Asians) as well as local First Nations laboured in the canneries during the summers. They travelled far distances with their entire families and almost no possessions for employment.
