Prince Rupert, BCThe third-deepest natural ice-free harbour in the world, Prince Rupert is known as a port of call for cruise ships bound for Alaska, and as the departure point for many whale-watching tours.

Visitors to this harbour town are struck by its splendid views and friendly welcome. Prince Rupert's wet climate and frequent storms have given it a reputation as the "City of Rainbows". As the saying goes, "after the storm comes the calm" or, in this case, the rainbow!
