BC Ferries floats Tsawwassen to Prince Rupert route

CBC News

BC Ferries is looking to open up the north coast tourism industry with a new cruise-style ferry trip connecting Tsawwassen and Prince Rupert up the Inside Passage, CBC News has learned.

“What we are proposing is every two weeks in the summertime to have the Northern Expedition come down to Tsawwassen and bring the tourists up north,” said spokeswoman Deborah Marshall.

The 30-hour ocean voyage, would depart from the Tsawwassen terminal south of Vancouver, stop over in Port Hardy on the northern tip of Vancouver Island, before heading up the Inside Passage to Prince Rupert on B.C.’s North Coast.

The trip, which would be BC Ferries longest route, would follow the first leg of the same scenic route up the Inside Passage taken by dozens of cruise ships carrying thousands of international passengers from Seattle and Vancouver to Alaska each summer.
