One of the iconic towns of the Skeena River is the town of Port Essington. Founded by Robert Cunningham in 1871 and a fall camping spot of the Tsimshian known as Spokeshute this site has over a wealth of interesting sites and features that will truly amaze you! A jungly 100 year cemetery with hundreds of moss covered headstones, a grisly boneyard of cow skulls and bones, a one km long boardwalk falling into disrepair, pilings protruding out of the brackish river on their last legs, a boiler form the Cunningham sawmill, old bottles, trinkets, and remnants from over 100 years of habitation. The One day Port Essington Experience will jet boat you back in time to a place that few have visited and explored.
Welcome to the site of UNBC Continuing Studies’ Experiential Tourism blog!
I’m Rob Bryce and I want to share with you my knowledge of Northern BC and my passion for adventure. Come along with me on some of the most exclusive trips in Northern British Columbia!
As a coordinator for Continuing Studies at UNBC, one of my true pleasures is to bring together my love and knowledge of Northern BC and my passion for adventure resulting in this new Experiential Tourism program. I’m always looking for that new niche based northern BC “experience” that can be coordinated into a new “Experiential Tourism Program” through Continuing Studies.
