Discover the spirit of Prince Rupert by touring its most popular downtown attractions, including two intriguing museums.

Boarding your coach at the pier, you will begin with a drive through historic Prince Rupert, a city founded as the railway terminus to deliver salmon throughout North America. Of course, prior to the railway, the native Tsimshian had lived here for centuries, and their history is forever intertwined with the early Europeans who immigrated here.

Some of the stories of the Tsimshian are told in the intricately carved totem poles found at one of your tour stops, Totem Park. A different side of history is expressed at another stop, the Kwinitsa Railway Museum. This interesting museum commemorates the lives of the early station agents and linemen who worked the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway at the turn of the century. Meanwhile, the Museum of Northern British Columbia beautifully presents the most revealing art and artifacts of the Northwest Coast, with an emphasis on First Nations artisans.

Along with your museum visits, you will also see several of Prince Rupert's most acclaimed modern attractions, including the trendy Cow Bay shopping district and City Hall, a lovely federal building constructed in 1938. For the best panoramic view of the area, you will stop at the overlook above the port.

After a wonderful overview of the city that serves to showcase its nature, art, culture and history, you'll have the choice of remaining in town to further explore on your own, or returning with the coach to the ship. Those who remain in town will be responsible for making their own way back to the ship.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of easy to moderate walking/standing; however, there is an incline to negotiate to reach the. The tour is available to wheelchair guests with collapsible, non-motorized wheelchairs who are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. No guides or service animals are permitted in the Museum. A Museum staff member may be requested in advance for visually impaired guests. Warm, layered clothing; waterproof jacket and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
