Our whole trip to Canada had been planned around boarding the ferry for it's weekly sailing down The Inside Passage to Port Hardy.

I came up on the Northern Expedition which was a new ship...however I found this one a bit better. This was mainly due to the cabins not being right out on the deck. Overall, an awesome experience on board!

We took the ferry to Skidegate in the daytime, about 7 hrs to cross. The lounges and restaurant were comfortable and the food was adequate. Of course, there is not much to see after leaving Prince Rupert, but we did see signs of orcas.

Even though its in wrong location on map, this is a BC ferries vessel that travels in summer. Its a nice ship, but it would be better suited in Mediterranean or some calm sea. It was never built for pacific ocean and it shows. On a nice day, its a great ride. Way too expensive though.
