Things to do in Prince Rupert

by vse188

We are going to be in Prince Rupert on Thurs. July 3 from 4pm to 10pm. We are looking for things to do. How about a good place to eat? Things to see? etc.
We are coming in on a cruise ship.

Dont know much about Prince Rupert, but we are cruising (Alaska) in September and found the best help for ports of call on "cruise-critic dot com" .

It's great site with great help from experienced cruisers.

Cheers

Hi - about two weeks ago we did a private excursion to Khutzeymateen, a Grizzly Bear Sanctuary. We booked with Palmerville Adventures. One of the highlights was seeing a sow and her 2 cubs from a boat about 10 feet away. We were in a small private boat so we were able to get in very close and watched them playing for a long time. Greg from Palmerville lives there and knows a lot about the bears and their routines. This excursion is also offered by the cruiseline (at least it was by RCI). It is all done by boat (from PR to the sanctuary). Since it is a larger boat, they are not able to get in as close though. With Palmerville you take a sea plane to the sanctuary. Definitely one of the highlights of our cruise! Happy Travels!

Prince Rupert and Cow Bay

by WittyName32

I came into Prince Rupert by Greyhound, a 2.5 day trip from Lake County, California, where I was then living. You go through Prince George, which is inland British Columbia, after which is next to nothing but nature for ten hours or so -- just great expanses of some of the most beautiful land you'll ever see. Green, big, with eagles up above and a bear or two on the side of the road. Prince Rupert appears at the end of it all, the last thing before the ocean, popping up like a dream. A real beautiful town, if a little impoverished. I stayed in the Pioneer Hostel, which is the only place to stay in town (another hostel is available, but it's more like a halfway house -- a whole other story, my first night there). You can catch ferries here to the Queen Charlotte Islands to the west and Alaska to the north (the panhandle start just above Prince Rupert) -- but plan ahead. You can go three days at a stretch without a ferry to Alaska, depending on the time of year.

Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary - III

by GrumpyDiver

"Grass eating Grizzly"

Here's something new - grizzly bears eating grass. When the bears first come out of hibernation, they head to the valley at the bottom of the estuary to eat sedge grass, some 35 kg / 80 lb a day. As berries come into season, they will eat them as well, and in August through into October, they will catch salmon as as they are running up the creeks in the area to spawn.

"Wrestling bears"

This younger and older bear appear to know each other. After a bit of hesitation (the younger one ran away when the older one came out to defend her territory), they started playing and wrestling, just like cubs.

And one more picture of wrestling bears.

"Clam digging bear"

This is the older of the two bears in the previous images. Here she is out looking for clams on the beach at low tide.

"Bear tracks!"

We did set foot on land for a very brief period. These are bear prints along a bear path. The bears always place their paws in the same indentations.

"Other animals in the sanctuary"

There were plenty of harbour seals in the estuary. We mostly saw them swimming. This one sitting high and dry was an exception to that rule.

"Bald eagle"

This bald eagle sitting on the root of an uprooted tree looked quite regal, and let us approach rather closely before it flew off.
