THE PRINCE RUPERT ADVANTAGE

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.
