Visit the oldest intact cannery in British Columbia, the North Pacific Cannery, a National Historic Site and an integral part of the province's economic and cultural history, on this fascinating walking tour that combines local history and the great outdoors. Dress warmly and wear sturdy shoes, then begin your three-hour adventure with a motorcoach ride to the mouth of the Skeena River, where the cannery stands today. Begin with a 45-minute interactive walking tour of the cannery musuem complex itself, its many buildings, and displays of artifacts of the fishing industry, such as boats, original machinery and employees' personal items. Head outside to explore the compound's exterior as your guide provides insight into the river's ecosystem. Shop for regional arts and crafts at the cannery store before departing for port.

Special Notes:

Wear sturdy walking shoes. It is essential that you wear warm, layered clothing in order to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion. Outer layer should be waterproof and windproof. Bring gloves, a warm hat and a scarf. This is a National Historic Site and as such all items must remain on the site, and guests are advised to mind their surroundings as the site is under constant restoration and preservation.
