We were touring the Island in our motorhome and decided take a different route home. We prebooked passage on 'The Queen of the North' and so when it was time we headed to Port Hardy, and drove our motorhome onto the ship and left for Prince Rupert. It was an amazing journey, lasting 15 hours. We went past small communities like Bella Bella, and other smaller ones, many light houses, and some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. This was about 18 months ago, and unfortunately, that ship sank!! Yikes!! I hear they have a new one, and are still getting some bugs out of it. Hopefully it will have better luck than the last one. It's called Northern Adventure, and we are planning on going back soon. I would recommend it to anyone.
