In May, June and July, the American bald eagles roam the skies of Prince Rupert by the hundreds in search of their next meal. Get acquainted with them on this marine wildlife and historical lighthouse cruise by beautiful 72-foot catamaran. The vessel is heated and has fully covered cabins with four outdoor viewing decks.
As you cruise along the Pacific coast, this outing immerses you in some of the most beautiful scenery in BC. Keep your eyes and ears open, as this area is also known for its abundance of marine wildlife, including humpback whales on the prowl for krill and orcas following schools of salmon. The complexities of the food chain will play out right before your eyes. Watch for some world-famous lighthouses, too, and learn about the fascinating history of these beacons and their keepers.
Return to the Atlin Dock, adjacent to the cruise ship dock, in Prince Rupert, where your tour concludes.
