Queen of Prince Rupert at dock in Prince Rupert, BC
With the launching of the Northern Expedition and the decomissioning of the Queen of Prince Rupert (1966 - 2009)it is the end of an era for community coastal ferry service. The Queen of Prince Rupert and her sister ship the Queen of the North(lost at sea, 2006) were much anticipated events in the many small communities they serviced year round bringing mail, groceries, freight, family and news from the outside.

My how the fleet has grown!
