We are sounding our horn for AltaGas to celebrate its new dual-fuel LPG vessels, Boreal Voyager and Boreal Pioneer!

They will deliver Canadian LPG from the Port of #PrinceRupert to key markets in Asia and enable greater efficiency in trans-Pacific energy supply chains.

By using LPG, these new vessels provide a 25% reduction in emissions from traditional bunker fuel and a 90% drop in nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides – the two main pollutants from ship emissions.

The Prince Rupert Port Authority was honoured to be part of the ship naming ceremony in Ulsan, South Korea, hosted by SK Shipping and Hyundai Heavy Industries. It marks an important milestone in the ongoing collaboration with our industry partners to develop the West Coast Green Shipping Corridor and cut carbon emissions at the Prince Rupert Gateway by 30% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.


On Saturday March 2nd, search and rescue exercises will be conducted throughout Prince Rupert’s inner harbour. These activities will happen between 11AM and 4PM and involve multiple vessels. A non-toxic smoke generator will be used during the drills.

This joint training will include Prince Rupert Port Authority, Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue, Canadian Coast Guard, Coastal Nations Coast Guard Auxiliary, and Prince Rupert Ground Search and Rescue.

Participants will gather at the Cow Bay Breakwater. There are no waterfront walkway closures planned, but members of the public are asked to maintain a safe distance to allow emergency responders the space to conduct their training.

Infographic that shows that Prince Rupert offers an 8 day sailing time, making it the shortest Pacific Route

Shortest Pacific Route

The Port of Prince Rupert is North America’s closest port to Asia by up to three days sailing—it’s 36 hours closer to Shanghai than Vancouver and over 68 hours closer than Los Angeles.

Safe Access to Shipping Lanes

Major marine risks are greatly mitigated by the ideal natural features of our harbour. The Port of Prince Rupert has the deepest harbour in North America, is ice-free year round, and is able to accommodate the largest vessels in the shipping trade.

Deepest Harbour in North America

Our deep, wide, and protected approaches enjoy a short, direct access to and from Pacific shipping lanes and oers ample room for anchorages. That’s why our pilot time is 2-6 hours less than other major Northwest ports.
