Planning a trip to "the Island" in 2013 !!! ;D I figure if I go all the way out there for a nice trip I should maybe take the ferry from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert and come home thru Prince George and Home !! Has anyone done the "ferry ride" ?? Good idea…bad idea??? Best month to go?? (thinking June). I have done a little research …….and it sounds like quite incrediable trip !! 15 hr ferry ride. Does anyone know how the roads are from Prince Rupert to Prince George ? Man………I can't wait to hear from everyone and for me to continue planning !!! Darn winter !!! :'(
Pre-booked the ferry ride from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert last night ……… 😮 Holy Smokes …I did a little research on costs BUT didn’t expect $500 for me and my bike !!! :'( (Ohhh well it’s only money ! LOL) Booked it and still looking forward to the trip !! Should be a good time !! 15 hr ferry ride that’s suppost to be incrediable !! Got a “comfy chair”(costs extra) for the ferry ride too. Chairs are suppost to be good for viewing the “sights” and hopefully for some zzzz’s too !! I will be too excited to sleep probably any way !! ;D
;D I made it ….and it was one of the most interesting and incredible things I ever done !! First, I didn’t get sick !! Second… it was the fastest 15 hrs of my life !! Got to see so much wildlife…like 6 whales.. including orcas…dolphins… a seal… at least 4 eagles….and the waterfalls, etc !! If you ever get a chance to go on this ferry do it !!! Cost a bit BUT it was one of the most relaxing and beautiful things I have ever done !!
