Frontier’s Personal Experience

“I loved my all-too-brief visit to Prince Rupert, which is definitely worth more than an overnight before/after the ferry. The Cow Bay area is full of fun shops, bars and restaurants – go to Dolly’s Fish Market for the best fish and chips! – and the full day bear or whale watching excursion is perfect if you are short on time and want to see wildlife.”
