During our “Canneries of the NorthCoast” tour and two nights of the “Skeena River Historic Journey by Jet Boat” we will be staying at the historic Cassiar Cannery on the banks of the Skeena River near the estuary. The guest will be staying in the former homes of the cannery managers, the houses have been restored and are fully furnished with luxury linens and complete kitchens.
The Cassiar Cannery, which was built on Inverness Passage on the Skeena River in 1903. It canned salmon until 1983 which made it the longest running cannery on the Northcoast. Here is a link to their website.
Each morning we will board the jetboats in front of the Cannery and head off for our next adventure. We do not have to travel far as this area of the Skeena was the epicentre of the commercial salmon industry. There are remnants from the past everywhere if you know where to look. Let us show you some amazing sights and also learn about this historic area of our province.
