, Prince Rupert is easily accessible by air, rail, cruise ship, ferry, car, or recreational vehicle.
The excellent sport fishing, exceptional wildlife viewing, top notch attractions, and extensive outdoor activity options make Prince Rupert the ideal choice for family vacation rentals, condo rentals, or other accommodation. From your lodging spend a day exploring the town or set out on an adventure. Main attractions in the port town include spectacular ocean fishing, whale watching and grizzly bear-viewing tours; and enjoying amazingly fresh seafood at 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 and your accommodations.
The city's main tourist area, Cow Bay, is cute, quaint and on the waterfront close to downtown. The three or so block area is easy to find as it is uniquely decorated with cows to represent the hub's name. Cow Bay is a great place to shop, sip on a coffee, enjoy a tasty meal or brew as well as explore the art work in the artists' cooperative there. Eagles fly overhead while cargo ships and fishing boats putter past the dock. During the summers, huge cruise ships dock here. Whales swim and play in the deep ocean about an hour offshore.
Rupert's surrounding old-growth rainforest is lush and moist, as is the town's air. Though the land seems untouched, petro glyphs and evidence of ancient First Nations villages prove the existence of people in this area thousands of years back.

An area with over 10,000 years of First Nations history. Where fishing is both a job and a form of recreation. A place where being friendly and out-going is just the natural way to be. This is Canada like you have never experienced.
