Prince Rupert is a town of 13,000 and is the hub of British Columbia's north coast. Like most towns on the west coast at one time it vowed to be the terminus of a railroad. It is the third deepest port in the world. Mining, fishing, forest products and now the cruise ship industry sustain it.
I just read that there is a Safeway store just two-blocks from the marina. Fresh veggies! I bet that I walk to that store more than once. We are planning to bring a couple of small backpacks as the "walk to the store" is the norm in most of these towns. A chance to stretch the legs will be most welcome.
The USA/Canada border is just north of Prince Rupert. This town is the Canadian Customs entry point for southbound cruisers.
