2024 Inside Passage Flotilla North – Day 20 Kumealon Inlet to Prince Rupert

It was a calm and rainy morning in Kumealon Inlet. One that calls for a hot cup of tea while you ease into waking up. The waters were a bit choppy heading to Prince Rupert, with wispy white clouds hovering low on the horizon, making the peaks of snow-covered mountains just barely visible.

We spotted a handsome black bear strolling along a sedge covered ledge, seemingly searching for food. Eventually he plopped down in the grass to take a rest, looking as if he were posing for us. He was quite the photogenic bear, with his pointy ears sticking straight up.

We passed several large cargo ships as we made our way back into “civilization.” Our fleet of goslings were little specs in comparison. Miles of colorful railroad carts lined the tracks along the shore, standing out boldly against the forest full of green.

Prince Rupert is definitely an industrial driven town, historically intended to be the final destination port for a trans-continental railway, as well as being the “halibut capital of the world.” With Cow Bay in close proximity, the town was decorated in cow spots, giving it a unique quirkiness. Everyone went out to eat for the night, taking advantage of the luxury of being docked in a town with restaurants!
