Prince Rupert, British Columbia
Located at the mouth of the Skeena River on British Columbia's scenic North Coast lies one of the most unique places in the province. Surrounded by outstanding wilderness beauty and biodiversity, Cassiar Cannery is pleased to offer four fully furnished, self-catered waterfront heritage houses for nightly or executive rental.

Nestled along the shoreline of Inverness Passage, Cassiar Cannery's Guest Houses are unique and comfortable. Estuaries are rare ecosystems where fresh water from the Skeena River, second largest river in BC and one of the longest rivers in the world without a dam, mixes with the ocean resulting in a rich complex ecosystem supporting a host of flora and fauna.

Expect to see our resident eagles and ravens perched on the old pilings watching for juvenile salmon and other forage fish. A myriad of migratory bi...

This was my second trip to the Cassiar Cannery, and I can assure you it won't be my last.

The cabins are so comfortable and the...

I stayed at the Cannery by myself on a business trip in Prince Rupert this week. My intention was to find something a little off the beaten track and different from the usual 'room, bed, tv'.
